Come on in if you have anything to say about college life: professors, the clubs, frats, sororities, partying, people who walk around campus talking "crazy talk", and many good things. Do keep it clean, even if your talking about anything sexual, intoxication, drugs, etc., but try to make it exciting.

Wait one month, and then I can reply to this thread. :D

Seriously though, I'm not too keen on college. Things can get pretty crazy, but oh well....I need a job, so I have to go I guess!

Well I can tell you some things I have experienced in San Jose State, even though I attended there for about two months (I'll explain later why). So basically, when I started, I decided I wanted to live in the dorms. So I met my roommate, Chris for the first time, packing my stuff up. I tried to adjust to the weather at first, but I felt like I wanted to faint because it was very humid and hot at an early August. For the first time, I was not with my parents anymore. It was just me and my new roommate. I was shaking as they left me alone for the first time. I was so nervous to be alone. I say to myself that I was gonna have more freedom from where I'm living.

I'll tell you more later because I would have to write a book to tell my experience, but I'll make it short and say you don't have to worry about fitting in college. It's just like high school, only if you're living in a dorm, it's like border school. Also, there will be people who are or will become densely work-minded.

Okay. I'll...um...take your word for it?


Do take it. It won't be easy as you think. You might end up not liking college it and taking community instead. I was considering going to DVC, but ended up to sign up for SFSU. Remember why you're in college; you want to learn beyond from what you learned in high school. I would never consider myself to go to any party because I think it's overrated, although you can see what it's like, but I would advise you not to get drunk or do drugs around campus, especially around the fraternity/sorority houses or anywhere else, unless you can find ways to not get caught, but again, no.

In 3 days, I'll be moving into my new dorm room. I've already finished one year in college, but this is my first time in the dorms. My room's private (for medical reasons that I won't get into) and it's my first time away from home. Looking forward to it.

And you should be! Speaking from one year of experience, college isn't complete without both the academic and social components. Dorm life definitely helps in making friends, and it's not like you have to party every weekend to be accepted (at least, I didn't have to).

Exactly. I've seen what drugs & alcohol can do to people, unfortunately, and I decided a long time ago against doing them.  I'll still have a blast, I'm sure--just without drugs and booze.

Aw, so nI can't play any drinking games with you? :(

j/k

I did find out my roommate is an exchange student from Japan, which is pretty interesting.

I have plans to learn to play bass and get a band together in college, though it's more likely I'm going to have to front a band.  I might also look into capoeira, but as far as activities go, that should be more than enough.

That's cool about the band thing. Hope things work out!

Well, I've finally gotten myself situated in my dorm room. We've got most of my furniture, etc. in its proper place, and I told my parents I could hook up most electrical things myself. I've talked to the residence hall advisor as well as a few other guys, and it appears that I'm going to like dorm life (fingers crossed!).

Well I feel much better coming home because I'm in my comfort zone. I remember changing my mind about staying in my dorm when I first packed up my stuff in my dorm and met my roommate for the first time. I was shaken up of the idea of trying to introduce myself to the people at my floor. Especially using the communal bathroom, for reason I won't discuss but for the showers, which were individual showers, which I was pleased enough. I barely met any of my next door neighbors, never went to any social gatherings, I decided that I didn't need anybody to talk to outside of class until I felt comfortable. I have learned from my two months at San Jose, but at least I don't have to live with a stranger.

Just got out of my first dorm meeting (DAMN it took a long time), and it seems I'll probably like it here. Most of the guys I talked to seemed pretty nice, and I know the guy in the dorm next door from high school. Classes don't start till Thursday, so I'm just chilling till then.
