I have had the pleasure of being at Imperial for four years and in less than one month I will leave and never darken their doorstep again. In all my time here I have had the pleasure of meeting about 3 really genuine, honest and morally upstanding members of the student body. Whilst I do not count myself in this 3, as I have a lot to live up to, I have the impression that the huge majority of student here only care about themselves.
I tried to analyse why there is such a small amount of humanity at college. What was it these three people had in common? Where was it they differed to everybody else. Why were there fewer people like this at Imperial? Sadly I can't answer these questions. If I could I would be a better person. What I did notice was these people would always stop what they were doing to talk to you, and listen to you. They would put other people first over and above what they were doing. They wouldn't take advantage of or use other people.
I challenge all the readers of this to think before doing anything. Will this affect other people positively or adversly? Every day could you do something for somebody else. Don't walk on by, but give up your time to help others.
