Essay on Student Life

Student Life

Student Life refers to the part of life that a student spends studying in schools, colleges, and universities. Like all other phases of life, student life has its own peculiar joys and sorrows, its own responsibilities and worries.

A student carries immense responsibilities on his shoulders. At first sight, he seems to have a free and easy time, because he is not called upon to earn. The students have to depend on their guardians. Students know how hard it is for guardians to pay for their educational expenses, and no wonder many of them have to combine earnings with learning. Their parents pay their fees, purchase books and make other expenses.

Children know, however, that very soon they will have to face the problems of life, that they will not merely maintain themselves but also look after others. Also, the future development of the nation entirely depends upon the young lot of today. Understanding their responsibility, they work hard to become educated citizens of tomorrow.

There are so many examinations we have to sit for – periodical, terminal, annual, test, and final, to name only the most important ones amongst them. Examinations are probably good training many of us would possibly neglect our studies if there were no examinations. The problem is particularly acute where the scope of employment is very limited. The students look at the number of unemployed and unsuitably employed men around them.

The life of a student has many joys and its most important feature is its hopefulness. Except for determined shirkers, all students have the excitement of learning new things a day by day, year by year. Failures are depressing no doubt, but there are successes too, and every success marks a definite stage of progress. The pleasure of new learning and the confidence that it produces are enough compensation for all worries and troubles. Intellectual progress is no doubt the happiest feature of a student’s life.

There are other pleasures and excitements, too. In youth, men and women are warm-hearted, there is little scope for the play of selfish instincts. That is why students form very warm friendships, friendships that often last through life. Students pass the larger part of the day, attending the same classes, reading the same books, sharing the same amusements, and participating in the same pranks, and this draws them to one another and binds them with ties of love and comradeship.

Student life is also marked by a deep idealism. As pointed out before, in youth men are away from the hard struggle of life; they do not know how ideals fly away at a touch of reality. They have hope and courage, and they want to make the world better. Whenever there is a famine or a flood, it is easy to enlist the services of students. They are here, there, and everywhere, trying to do their little bit for suffering humanity. Students are followers but it is they who are at the forefront of progressive movements all over the world. It is good to see the beaming on their faces.

An important feature of student life is the sense of team spirit. Students are young men and women full of high spirits. They organize socials, music, dramas, cultural festivals, and sports and games. Men work by themselves and look to their own interests. But students are always for their class, their school or college, and their team. It is this loyalty that makes all their ventures enjoyable.

Student life is a period of preparation. Students may join politics, they may take part in sports and games or they may engage themselves in other extra-academic activities but they must know that all these are not ends in themselves but part of training that will fit them for the greater work of life. They must not lose themselves in these other activities in which they can take part in a spirit of detachment. These may be good in their ways, but these must not be allowed to absorb all their energies. 

It is said that “student life is golden life,” because student life is the most important part of human life. It is a period of pure joy and happiness because the mind of a student is free from the cares and worries of a grown-up life. In this period, the character of a man is built. So, it is called the formative period of human life. Every student should try his best to make the best use of his student life.

The primary duty of a student is to learn and acquire knowledge. He must do all his work at the right moment and maintain punctuality and discipline. He must remember that if a student becomes successful in his student career and his character is built on a sound basis, he will be able to shine in any sphere of life and serve his society and country.

A student should spend most of his time during this golden period reading and learning. A good student never wastes his time fixed on reading uselessly. But he must not be a bookworm being always engaged in his studies. He should also be careful about his health and spend some time daily in some sports and games. He should try to develop his body and mind at the same time.

As a student, he must try to develop his intellect. He should also try to acquire some good qualities like obedience, dutifulness, respect for elders, and love and sympathy for fellow man in society. The duty of a student is to obey his parents and teachers and respect the elders of the society. Students are the future hope of the country. So every student should try to be the best citizen in all respect, so that they may serve their country as they can.
