The Reality Of Life After Campus


The reality that awaits every campus student once they have graduated may startle many recent graduates. The moment you take of that gown and exit campus premises, then you’ve begun living a completely different life. The truth is that change is bound to occur and you’re subjected to it.

Well, for a typical student, you used to party, drink and tour and all these activities financed by either your parent’s cash or your little earnings. The moment you step out of campus, these activities will be put to a minimum or wholly halted because of the bills, student loans that must be paid.

Ever heard of the phrase, TRUE FRIENDS? It doesn’t hold any truth in it when suddenly you try calling your friends only to hear, ‘Mteja hapatikani’ or ‘the number is no longer in service.’ This is pretty normal as many of them will be on the move discovering what life has in store for them. After graduation, life can pull you away from your crew but such is life.


The yearn to be with someone sets in  after graduation day. This is common especially when everyone around you is married, many responsibilities have come by for men, or you played the ‘hard to get’ kind of girl while in campus and now you have no connections.

4. Priorities Change
You always dreamt of completing studies and maybe getting a job, starting a family, traveling to that scenic Coastal beach or moving out of the country. But all these will change due to the different dynamics of life that befall you. First priority here will be how to get money for the basics.

5. Your Confidence May Suffer
College students prepare for their future but the ratio of chances of failure to success are high, due to the uncertainty about what the future holds. This’s true because no one knows what will happen in future.Do not let fear grip you, but rather be confident in yourself.
