Behold The College Girls is the story of how students in an exclusive girls’ mission boarding school interact with one another, on the one hand, and with their principal and staff, on the other. It portrays the power play between senior and junior level students, particularly the obstinate Form 2 students. Other struggles show students taking on the challenge of inadequate meals as well as the prohibition to entertain romantic relations with boys of other colleges within the city. It equally highlights key events like spending a day with boys, and the Vocational Week aimed at recruiting reverend sisters. The story brings to the fore the shared views of four key actors on main occurrences, with one of them featuring in every event, and thanks to whom the setting changes from the college campus to the outside world, particularly the village. In the closing chapter, readers cannot help but sympathise with the key protagonist due to the quandary she is facing- to pursue higher education or not, and if so, where? Thus, Behold The College Girls ends with a suspense. Answers can only be supplied through a sequel.
