“Always been a last bench student, but never missed the first class of orientation”
Schools never had the orientation classes. On the first day at school, the subject teacher used to highlight the chapters only. S/he would describe them in brief, compare what’s changed from last year. Then we would learn at least some part of the first chapter. But high school was different. I studied at WhiteHouse High School, Khumaltar, Lalitpur. There my seniors organized welcome program which was awesome. Later, the subject teachers did a good orientation. I studied science so Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry were the core courses. The Physics lecturer, Dr, Ajay Kumar Jha asked us this question “Should the Pressure Cooker of your house blow the whistle while cooking food?” That question was funny and had a good lesson to learn. The maths teacher shared how the three-dimensional coordinate system is important for army soldiers in launching missiles, The Lecturer who taught us Calculus gave a simple example of limit and derivatives. He started with a theorem and explained the incremental approach to derive the limits. And at the end of the class, he said, limits, derivatives, Integrations, Transformations, will never leave you in your future. And yes, he was right, they never did! Science is all about, statistics, linear algebra, number theories, derivatives, and integrations.
Yes, classes are always important, but the orientation classes are special. That’s why the orientation class for MTech. IT was something I wouldn’t miss. Therefore, I took a day off at my work and attended the orientation.
This time the orientation was being given by the same faces. They are all my respected faculties who guided me in the undergrad. But this was the orientation for graduate studies. In international universities, if one misses the orientation he might miss the graduate studies too. The faculties gave us an introduction about the masters program, research opportunities, scholarships, Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant programs. I personally didn’t get the right individual to ask my question.
We get to meet our new friends. Altogether there are fifteen candidates selected for the Master’s program. I met some individuals during the interview session but today almost11 candidates were present. We three friends, Aakash, Arun and I being the alumni of KU, gave a tour of the University. It was the first time I myself did the complete tour of the KU Corner. So these bunch of boys and girls are gonna be the bench partners, project partners, for two long years. I wish all of them are not only bookish but also fun-loving, think broad and are active in participating in different events in the upcoming days.
