The Story Never Ends ! [UCSC Batch 6]

End of a journey, But still couldn’t believe it! Though it was already expected, I never realized that end of my undergraduate life would make me this much sad. Even though we (my batch mates, UCSC 6th batch, 2007/2008) are not graduated yet, yesterday was the final remarkable day at university for most of us except our friends who’ll be doing the fourth year.

We set our first steps in our university life in 2008 July, with so many hopes, goals and dreams. Bunch of strangers in a strange place! But now I don’t want to leave this place; the place which turned the paths of our lives entirely. Three years ago, I was so glad and proud to become an undergraduate in University of Colombo. Still I am, and it’ll be same for the future. Hope that was a common feeling among all of my fellow friends.

Fun at the university ground : Just within one-two months after entering the university

We got a lot from UCSC, including the foundation step to our future. In-turn, we tried our best to give something back. Hope our efforts to do something for UCSC will match at least a fraction from what we got.

'Shramadhana' campaign 2008

It’s not only the place, but also the people which made last three years so special and unforgettable. I must say, I had a wonderful set of batch mates. United as one, we were able to perform tasks which were considered as ‘hard’, but also with exceeding the expected level! Not only my fellow friends, but also my seniors, juniors and the UCSC staff should also be remembered. One thing I’m sure of is, the peace and harmony we had at UCSC is not common in most of the government universities. The credit of that belongs to all of the people mentioned above. 

Sports day 2008  : One of the crazies fun days we ever had

Batch trip 2008 : Hike to Hanthana

However, as it happens to every good thing, university life should come to an end. We have spent three years in university together, by following a common path sharing the joys and sorrows with each other. From now on, each of us will be taking different paths, different goals.

Paduru Sajje 2010 : Where all the batches and the staff share the same joy

IFO++ Exhibition 2010 : Commitment and the hard work finally paid off !

Yet the memories we had will remain for ever. Yes, it’s time to departure.., but this is not the end. This is just a milestone…, our stories have so many chapters to come… within those, we’ll meet again. Even then I'm pretty sure we will be the same ‘batch’ just as it was three years ago.

The story never ends !
