WHILE YOUR BEDAN journey officially starts today, we know that it’s a struggle to keep everything afloat. So when you find yourself in doubt, just visit this article for a little tap on the shoulder for encouragement. 

We know that rainy days will come not only literally, but also figuratively in your college days. And being overwhelmed by a new environment and people may happen especially as a freshman. Don’t worry, we completely understand you because like what the ‘oldies’ usually say, “been there, done that ”. Yup, we also had our own storms, it wasn’t always sunshines and rainbows inside the university. And that my dear new lion is just okay, because that’s the reality—of college life. This was inspired by a feature article made by our former Editor-in-Chief, Nicole Rile back in our 2020 issue.

Alright, freshies, we know that you’re about to ride the most exciting and terrifying roller coaster of your life as you officially enter the den today. You may falter but that’s not the end of your journey and the goal that you’ve set. Everyone has their own path that’s waiting to be paved for their own way. And if all hope seems lost, you may pray to the Lord for a good sign, and you may come back in this article for a little tap on the shoulder.  

Nevertheless, you’re now a Bedan Lion, which means that you’re ready to be a leader, a fighter, and a competent team player. Welcome and enjoy the time of your life here in San Beda!
