A student like me is one of the thousand students in MSU-IIT who strive for the future in an institution which is renowned for its excellence when it comes to its graduates. Just a normal college student with a normal life living in a dormitory which is quite far from the campus vicinity and a teenager from Pagadian City went to Iligan City to pursue the dream of becoming an engineer with all the things that my parent gave me and the will to fulfill the chosen path what drive me to really stand for it because it is for the future and the future of my family. What matters the most to me is my way of living inside the campus in every day for in every single second that I will be inside the campus means a second of progress towards my very goal of becoming an engineer. As a student of MSU-IIT (Mindanao State University Iligan Institute of Technology) I have my day to day living inside the campus especially when it is school days. I encounter every day the usual life of a student attending his studies at one of the top university in the Mindanao. What is life inside the campus is the question which I want you all to know and I want to share to you.
Well my life inside the campus always starts at the dormitory which I lived which is at a distance from the school vicinity and I used to have a walk in going to the campus but sometime I will take a ride in times of emergencies. When I’m already inside the campus my first destination every Monday will be the CSM (College of Science and Mathematics) where my physics lab class took place and every Tuesday and Thursday my destination will be CSM again for the whole day where my CHEM12 class happen in the morning with Prof. Barredo and in the afternoon is my MATH51 class with Prof. Tubo. After that day my schedule for tomorrow is quite fearsome for in the morning I will be in the College of Arts and Social Sciences attending my two subjects which are History 3 and English 2 with Prof. Montesclaros and Prof. Villabona accordingly and after that I will go to the CON-NCR room beside the building of the CSM to attend my physics 21 class with Prof. Sambo and after that my math 51 class follows.
Every Wednesday is my PE class at the gymnasium at 4:30 pm up to 6:30 pm with Prof. Alcuizar and every Friday my schedule will be from 9:00am up to 7:30pm because after my math51 class I still have a class in the SET which is the chem12.1 or chem12 lab with Eng. and every Sunday is the schedule for our CWTS class for straight 3 hours of lessons, activities and seminars with Prof. Napoles. That’s how my life goes every day in attending my classes. Just somehow attending classes is not that really the whole thing about my life inside the campus it is the way of dealing with the subjects. The quizzes, oral participation and the departmental exams that really gave me a headache especially to the subjects where I usually failed to understand at the moment of discussion not to mention for my own good. In every subject that I had right now since it is already my second term in IIT seems always new to me.
The usual thing that I do when I don’t have classes is hanging out with my friends and talk on almost everything. My circles of friends are my day to day comrades in almost all of my subjects right now on this 2nd semester during my 1st year in college. When times that I have no class yet I used to stay at one place with my friends usually at the Himantayon Avenue at the CASS LOUNGE where we used to talk about the recent happenings of our studies and the results of quizzes and exams and future plans in life if time requires. Together with the older ones we share our ideas and share our thoughts in studying the lessons and inspiring each of us to pursue our dreams and especially me for I really want to graduate at my course right now in this very school so that my parents finance on me and their dream for me will came to life and I can have a brighter future for me and my family. During our vacant time we sometimes play basketball at the twin court right beside the gymnasium with varsities of our year.
During weekends we sometimes play together with different games like basketball and Frisbee. Joining school activities is a must if one is a student of MSU-IIT because it one of the requirements for it will serve as the general attendance in computing the liabilities in the College at the end of the semester. Assemblies, Palakasan, school, college department acquaintance parties are the main event in the school where we are obliged to attend. I join also to organizations and campus ministry which was located outside the campus and I engaged myself to a larger thing to explore myself more. In every life of a student mostly spent inside the campus and the activities within mainly contributed to the development of the learning that will help to fulfill my dream.
The main flow of my activities inside the campus explains how I manage the time and how I spend my time in order to achieve my goal and the expectation of my parent who support me in my endeavor here in Iligan City in MSU-IIT. My life inside the campus does not really focus on all academic also I joined the activities and programs that the school offers. My life outside is a important as the inside but inside the campus still I am not limited because I can do the things that I cannot do outside and all those things really contributed a lot in the development of my learning. The main flow is the dealing process and how I manage to get a hold to it. That’s how I manage to deal with my life inside the campus and my life right now still going on for I am still on the way to my dream of becoming a licensed Electrical Engineer.
