First Day on Campus1大学第一天
It was my first day on campus. The Winona State University of Minnesota, a small but neat and clean school. I flew a long way from Bangladesh to be here. The whole place looks white from the plane as it was covered with snow. I knew from my brother that it's very cold in Minnesota as it is on the north. So I covered myself with warm clothes.
I was nervous to be in a new place, but kind of curious too. A Bangladeshi student of WSU came to pick me up. I found myself in a new world, new people.
It’s impossible now to express those feelings in words here. But I can tell you my experiences. I felt little comfortable when I saw some Bangladeshi students in the orientation2. They were the representative3 of Bangladeshi student organization. I met students from different countries, like China, Japan, Africa, Iraq. I met one guy from Palestine. Time were moving with joy, I met a beautiful girl from South America who was really a nice person.
We got a lunch break. First time in my life I got the opportunity to taste American food which looks nice but didn’t fulfill4 my appetite5 as I love rice and curry6. But I know I have to depend on these foods. After lunch we were taken to visit the campus. Our group leader took us to different buildings and explained clearly. By this time I made some friends who are from Malaysia. I was enjoying every minute. We were also taken to a building to take pictures for our school I.D. I asked my group leader who was a Bangladeshi to take me to my dorm. I was kind of scared first as my roommate is an American. But when I met Riley (My roommate) I felt like he is one of us.
The sun went to bed soon and I felt tired as I walked a long way in the snow and it’s freezing outside. I prepared my mind for the next day as I have to go to my first class at 8:30 in the morning. So time to go to bed.
Such is my first day on campus.
