Faculty of Science, University of Colombo

Faculty of Science, University of Colombo
I'm aware that you guys are inquiring why there hasn't been any updated posts in recent weeks. Well, It's the fact that I had been quite busy as I got admitted to the Science Faculty of University of Colombo for my higher studies. I got registered for the University on 24th July 2009 and was already a fresher. The orientation program, for making the freshers aware of the University and Faculty system was in progress from the 3rd of August 2009 and still it is. I got used to the sub-culture of the University and got familiar with the unique dialect. After all it was a new experience to be a student rather an undergraduate of the University of Colombo and I've learning a whole lot of new things ever since the orientation session started.

Normally I attend the Uni before 7.00 am and get involved in the MARGOPADESHANAYA given by the senior batch till 9.00 am. From then onwards we have the orientations session where different personalities ranging from Professors, Lecturers, Demonstrators, Seniors deliver interactive presentations which vitally help us in broadening our knowledge on the university of Colombo and Faculty of Science in general. This session is held till 12.00 noon and afterward we are off to "Open" Canteen to have our lunch. At 1.00 pm our Intensive English Course is started at different 10 classrooms and it lasts for 3.5 hours, till 4.30 pm including the 30-minute interval at 2.30 pm. Again we have the next session of MARGOPADESHANAYA till 5.30 pm and we then spend few hours at Open canteen or University grounds before going home, thus getting familiar with the seniors and getting necessary advice as well.

It should be mentioned that we watched an inter-university Rugby match yesterday, featuring a match between University of Colombo and University of Peradeniya, which was won by us. Furthermore our science faculty won an inter-faculty Volleyball match as well last evening (21st Aug).
