Sounds the alarm in the morning for the fifth time, where I’m already late, I quickly, jump in my clothes, grab my bag, my mobile and wallet, the keys which I always forget, and head downstairs jumping into the car. Fortunately the traffic is fine, half an hour later, I reach my world of interaction, learning and getting taught and even teaching others, eating, drinking, practicing sports, working and having activities.
My Life at AUC, since I arrive at the campus, starts by passing my ID through that machine opposing my way to the class I’m late for. Passing my bag, through the other X-rays machine (looking out for bombs or something -. -), I set off running to my first class, where kindly my teacher allows me to and my day starts, I start waving my friends while I’m rushing, getting out that huge copybook from my bag. Then the class starts and ends while I’m still not even awake! Then my real day starts, because only by that time I’m at full consciousness! I start walking down to Cilantro grabbing my coffee and a couple of sandwiches or maybe a pizza from the food court, supplying me with the whole day’s energy. As soon as I finish my pizza, carrying my cup of coffee I start wandering around the Plaza, maybe applying for a new club, or watching some shows held by our Student Union’s Talent show, going to the library, passing through some books for some assignments or maybe my seminar course. Of course, its not what I do everyday, sometimes I have running classes, anyways, next I head to the last class I have before the assembly hour, rushing to this class, handing my assignments, and maybe presenting a presentation about a project, or having some fun activities with the professor, or maybe I just lay down listening to a boring class, any ways, what I adore most at AUC is that, Life at AUC isn’t about only classes, its about being yourself, and most of all, FUN! J.
As soon as the clock points to 1 pm this announces the assembly hour. No classes are scheduled in this hour from 1-2 pm so normally I am free at this hour, yet, sometimes when I have running classes this is the only time where I can pick a corrected assignment or pass by any teacher for some questions. But the fun part comes when I am free so I head to the sports center enjoying playing some Ping-Pong or maybe basketball with my friends. As for this semester my schedule doesn’t contain classes after the assembly hour except on Sundays; on Sundays when the assembly hour is over this is just the beginning of fun as I head to my CHEMISTRY LAB class where the statement of “ Impossible is nothing” proves to be true. As soon as I enter the lab we are instructed to wear the white lab coats, weird goggles and white gloves. In this class I feel that I have changed from a student to a kind of inventor or a noble prize achieving chemist! After finishing this fun-tastic class, hopefully with no test tubes bumping in anyone’s face, I head to my car so tired and once I reach home I have lunch as fast as possible then I fall asleep for one to two hours so that I refill my energy for studying or finishing any assignments. As I wake up, I start finishing my assignments, maybe studying for a midterm, or just watching a TV series carelessly, but the best part, is when I have my seminar book, in the bed with a cup of hot chocolate, reading the book while falling asleep, isn’t always that perfect as it seems as I don’t feel much time has passed when my alarm rings vigorously through my ears, sending me back to AUC! AUC is not about academics it’s about FUN, not only through clubs and fun facilities, it is even through liberal arts academic view, that although majoring petroleum engineering, I still can have debates in seminar classes, learn about philosophy, psychology and many other fields, which makes learning much more fun, interesting and leads a person towards liberality and being well educated and broad minded.
