FRESHIES TALK! The opinions of the class of 21′

The following article was submitted by a 1st year TDT-1A student, Khuban Khan. Here’s to hoping that more first year students take inspiration from this and help bring quackonline back to life.


Let me tell you something the hype about university is REAL. We work towards certain goals and try to get adequate grades just so we could end up in the university of our dreams and we think it will all be easy after that because * aik baar uni agaye phr tou degree lekar hi nkilen gay * but that’s not the case at all in fact it’s only going to get tougher from now. (Not to mention the pressure of joining the societies which are more than the actual number of students at TIP). But our freshmen are yet to experience all that the university life has to offer and have some pretty interesting things to say after their two week journey at TIP.


“My experience at TIP has been better than I expected. The friendly environment, the artistic architecture and the peaceful vibe all add to the great amount of experience we are having and will cherish when we graduate.
HAMMAD NAJAM
TDT-1B

NOTE: If you haven’t seen hammad’s illustrations then you are missing out and while you are at it just ask him why didn’t he choose fashion over textile.

“TIP to be very honest feels like home. At first I was scared of the new change since I came from Islamabad but now it seems like I have known this place for a very long time. In short Tip is the best thing that’s ever happened to me”
* JUST WAIT FOR THOSE ENDLESS WEAVING NIGHTS *

“It’s been over a week since the day I first came here. I remember being very nervous but in a short span of time I have started to settle in and have became very familiar with the campus and the seniors, we are interacting with them without any hesitation primarily because of the *CENSORED WORD* we went through. I have made friends for life and looking forward to all the challenges ahead”

*Usama definitely needs to know what *CENSORED WORD* is and since its BANNED at TIP he must be talking about what our seniors call… ‘the intro’ *

M USAMA


“Well obviously studying at TIP is tough and challenging but that’s just one side of the coin but if you flip it over its pretty amazing at the same time. You meet new people who are all different from one another with intriguing personalities and who make university life worthwhile. The campus is amazing and the faculty is unmatched”

“What I like the most about TIP is the fact that it has people coming from different backgrounds being good at different things and having goals of their own. I look forward to not only learning from them but also creating an environment for myself and others which feel like home”
HUZAIFA
TDT 1A


“My experience at TIP has been interesting as I came here not because of my personal interest but because someone recommended me but its turning out to be great and suiting me well”
SAFI IKRAM
AMM


“I like almost everything about TIP but the most important and appreciable thing is that in our campus smoking is strictly banned ehm ehm which contributes to a healthy environment”

“I came to TIP because a friend suggested me to. The campus is definitely the highlight for mw with every possible facility available, but on the downside it’s really far from my residence and the travelling drains most of my energy. I hope to get used to the routine IA having said that the seniors and the faculty are very co corporative and friendly and made us feel welcome I am looking forward to my 4 year journey at TIP.

“Since I was a med student I never wanted to anything except something related to science. I wasted a year over this and finally after being forced by my parents. I put my creative skills to use and appeared in the test of TIP after getting recommendations from a number of people and I am so glad I did. Textile design is so fun and the perfect discipline to explore my aesthetic abilities.

MARIA TDT 1B

Kudos to her for stepping out of her comfort zone and trying out something new as that requires quite a lot of courage.

‘City wale’ need hostel too.


Heres an interesting fact for the freshies.
In the good old days(by good old days I mean up until the last semester) anyone could stay at the hostel temporarily and that was and always has been such an important part of our student life.But off course the poor freshies wouldn’t know that because of the cursed B.A.N.

Why on earth was this ban imposed you must be wondering?
Well, It’s a weird thing thag CAN be posted here but ill prefer not to. Ask anyone in TIP, they’ll know what it was and you’re guaranteed to have an awkward conversation.

Anyways Coming to the point, the temporary hostel stay always always has been one of the charms of TIP life. Whether You have a group assignment or presentation to do, got an hourly or an important quiz to prepare for or you’re a TDT student falling behind on the weaving. The solution used to be simple. stay at hostel a day and Tadaa! Problem solved. and it even came with the extra perk of sitting back in smoking area at the time of sunset, relaxing,having a peaceful cup of chaye and just enjoying the away-from-the-city peace for a moment.

But then ‘IT’ happened. The management found out whatever they found * we all know what it was*. Decided to punish the rest of 398 students for the actions of 2 of them because that perfectly makes SOO MUCH sense right? *Might’ve been more than 2 depending on their preference iykwim*

Now it’s been a semester and god knows how tough it has been. Whenever we have a hostellite in a group assignment, the group co-ordination becomes impossible resulting in even worse marks than you’d normally get. Even for design students. With the workload from all the courses they could relax about weaving to a certain degree because all they had to do is stay for a day and complete it. but they can’t do it anymore because of the absolutely brilliant step of banning night stays for day scholars.

Now if you look at this situation from an outsiders perspective. This would STILL look like a very unreasonable ban taking away such an important part of campus life from students and for something about which you can’t even be 100% sure that it even DID happen.

Have You Witnessed the 12th Degree Designers?!

Have you ever wondered that how can anyone represent Iqbal’s Shiqwa on fabric? Or use Rust to create Tea effect? Or use Recycle fabrics to create a display? But it was all done by the institute’s designers.

Those who read the last article would know that it made a lot of negative ruckus around TIP; mostly around TISF. The president TISF came to me and blatantly told me that my information was wrong.

Need New Standards- HEC Visit.

Recently another dilemma happened at TIP- The High Education Commission committee came to TIP. Now as its 3:23 am and I am sitting alone in the dark so I hold immunity on whatever I write because: A) I am slightly fuzzy and B) the visit did piss me of- a little.
