Now, all the programmes here are run on a tight schedule. Understandably, staff and students alike are under a lot of stress ( so they say ). In fact at times, it can be liken to a pressure cooker.
Let us talk about the studentss. They have five assignments in 8 weeks of studies before a final. They have projects to complete, and of course the usual 'growing-up' kids problems too. To top it , apparently some of them also have problrm back in their hostels.
Yes indeed, at certain time of the semester, you do get zombies coming in and out out of the lifts . Its stress, pressure , schedules, date-lines, and lecturers, and lecturers and lecturers !!!
Yes three of the source of stress for them come from the lecturers ! You see, relationship between staff ( those mentioned earlier) and students is close. There is good rapport and no one could ask for a better situation than KLMU. You see, staff and students work together and PLAY together.
They had good bashing at each other ( all in good spirit though) on the blogs or real life --- but it os all in good clean fun.
Of course , the usual expectation to submit assignments and complete projects on time exist as it should. , but this, they expected and accepted all the time.
SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM AND HOW ELSE ARE THEY STRESSED !
Apparently, games are part of their activities and friendly competition with the staff go on a regular basis. However , it is said that constantly losing to a few members of the staff in various games seems to be the cause of it.
In fact, there is a theory that this might have resulted in a group of them who regularly sit on the main steps leading to the front door of KLMU .
Now, in the next episode, these students will be introduced.
So have a kit kat break or two ....because there are other groups of students and lecturers to be told. I am sure you would it even more interesting about ...about love , marriage, exams , the birds, and the trees, the flowers, and the bees ........
