Imagine that you could have made one change in your college experience. Explain what change would you have made and what difference It would have made?


College experiences teach invaluable lessons. Many experiences are happy memories; other are wishes if it could not have happened that way, or if it could be changed. Whenever I remember my college life, I always wished to change one of my experiences.


English was my optional (elective) subject in graduation. Later, I thought if I had chosen English as a compulsary subject It would give me better job opportunities. So, I started to attend English compulsary classes with my friend who had enrolled in the course. I had used to attend the class frequently. By the end of the semester, all students of the course had known me, but, execpt my friend, no one knew the fact that I did not enroll. However, he suggested me to ask the teacher first, I did not pay attention.


One day teacher asked me my roll number and caught me. I felt embarressed and left the class. Though the teacher could take serious actions and could tell the higher authorities, he just gave me the warning not to do it again. I had never come across the room again and never met my friend. I did not go to the college for many days.


I wish if I could have changed this incident and had formally registered for the English compulsary course. I would have been more confident in English and I would not have lost a friend. Moreover, I could have better memories with the teacher and other course mates.

Please suggest if there is another way to write this type(imaginary, If It would not have happend or If one of your wishes come true.) of essay.
