When I received the letter stating that I was selected to follow the biological science degree at the Faculty of Science, University of Colombo, I was absolutely delighted. People have a lot of good things to say about this university, but it is only once you get here that you truly realize its value.

Here at the Colombo Science Faculty there’s more to the degree than the things you learn from books. Each student is given an equal opportunity to discover one’s potential and also to lead a well-balanced student life.
Colombo is more or less known as a ‘concrete jungle’ because there are more buildings than trees. But anyone who walks through our gates would see that there are plenty of trees standing mighty and tall. There’s so much diversity among us as the student population consists of people from different parts of the country, belonging to different faiths. So with time, we learn to respect each other’s individuality and opinions.

For those of you who like physical activities, there’s a wide range of sports to choose from. You can do as many sports as you like and you can even try something new for the first time. A sport is not restricted to a particular Faculty, thereby allowing you to mix and mingle with students from different faculties. If you’re not too keen on playing a sport, you can get involved with a club/societies.

The Students’ Blog hosted by the Media Unit is an excellent platform for budding writers to express their views on various subjects.

There are a variety of cultural events hosted by the students such as Avurudhu Uthsawaya, Bodhu Bathi Gee, Vani Vizha and Christmas Carols which promote cultural understanding among the students. Not everyone gets the opportunity to study at the Faculty of Science, University of Colombo. So embrace it and make the most of your time here!
