Travel Week

I am currently busy with school work…it just seems to get more every day. But oh well, it also makes me look forward to summer break in two months:) As I mentioned I went to Kerala and Goa for travel week. It started with a 32 hour train ride from Pune to Kochi in the state of Kerala (south).

Integration Week

One thing I am sure of, is that in a future, when I look back at my first week at MUWCI two words will pop into my head: awkwardly funny. I will often ask myself how was it possible that I got the opportunity to laugh my lungs off and scream till my last breath with people whose name I had not learn yet.

Bikes and Bruises

With bruised bums and throbbing thighs, we plunked ourselves down onto the forest floor. Our eyes, heavy and half-closed, scanned the surroundings but failed to recognize any of its features. We were lost and quite terribly so. I guess our judgment may have been impaired by exhaustion because choosing a path based on how “pathlike” it is, isn’t always the best idea.

Living in the Wadas

Residential life is a very important component of MUWCI. In fact, in my opinion, it is the most important and unique part of it. Each of us shares a house with 7 other people and each room has 4 people- all four of us from 4 different cultural or social backgrounds.

Studying in MUWCI

If I had to choose one word to describe studying in MUWCI, I’d chose ‘challenging’. Challenging because we are constantly pushed to our limits in every aspect of our academic life. In UWC we follow the IB diploma programme; a highly demanding pre-university course, which requires us to take 6 subjects, ideally one from each group, out of which 3 are at a higher level and 3 are at a standard level. In addition to academics, the IB requires us to partake in 150 CAS (Community, Action, Service) hours.

Welcome to MUWCI

Welcome to MUWCI, and this universe has different lighting – fairy lights only, and the occasional sunset off internet hill, a hill with no internet. You can only get internet with the mosquito net open, the mosquitoes are in permanent assault, the rain, when it starts, doesn’t necessarily stop, and there is always one dryer which isn’t working. You are advised to shower occasionally, as you are advised to attend first block, but neither is strictly mandatory.
