First Day of College

Saturday, November 11th, 2006

On September 5, 2006 I officially started my freshman year in college at the Community College of Philadelphia. My first day I woke up early, and went through my morning routine of showering up and getting dressed and ready for school. I left the house pretty early to make sure I got to school on time. So with no book bag, a folded up, coverless, old spiral notebook and one pen in my back pocket, I hopped on the train and made my way to school. I got there almost an hour and a half early which isn’t always a bad thing If you’ve got some studying or last minute homework to do; but in my case I had nothing to do. I walked around campus pretty nervous wondering if there was anyone that I knew coming to the same school, what my professors were going to be like, and if there was some memo everyone got that I didn’t get considering almost everyone else had on a book bag or were carrying books, and I had nothing so I was worried about being prepared for class.
My first class was Intro to business which basically teaches one how a business operates, do’s and don’ts, and many other aspects one should know about business if they are interested in an entrepreneurial position, or a position in a business setting. The class is about the same size as an average high school class, as are most at CCP, which is a positive because there is nothing worse than an oversized class in college because it makes the opportunity between student and professor virtually impossible. I like the class, we have discussions about different things in the market and how we feel about it in general and the professor is funny and friendly.
My second class on my first day was my English 101 class. I liked it too because the professor was friendly, but he maintained the student teacher line with the student. He was very honest about how he conducted his course; he’s stern but fair and very helpful to those who inquire help. In this class we also have discussion about our text in this class. I liked this class because we get a background from the teacher about everything we read, so it’s like an English class and a History class wrapped into one.
Overall my first day of school went very well for me. I saw a few familiar faces, made new friends and finally feel like I’m going to school because I want to and not because I have to.
