RE: YA BOY IS GOING TO COLLEGE
I can already tell I'm going to be very overwhelmed and stressed for the first couple of weeks. My English class seems like smooth sailing so far. My speech class will require lots of online work. My orientation with require lots of online work as well, and I have a ways to go in progressing math wise.

From 3 to 5:30 I sat around campus starving and after my math class, my mom was supposed to come and pick me up but couldn't because she didn't know where the college was. So she went home, and I was stuck on campus until 9:20pm waiting on a friend to come and get me.

Luckily, I may be able to go home with a friend some days, I have a friend who I can go out for lunch with between 3 and 5:30, and I had a friend bring me powdered doughnuts, a banana, a coke and some popcorn before my math class because I had hardly eaten anything. I was a cheered up camper.

I came home with a major headache and my sister's dog had shit in my room.

Gross.

That time between classes will be useful for doing homework later on. Just be sure to use your time wisely Thumbsup

I'm now regretting this since I'm nearing the end of my time as an undergrad. I don't have a single college friend to speak of. My advice is get involved in something. It will expand your social circle.

Most of what I know has come from private study. This fact bothers me since I've paid a lot of money to get my degree. Once I graduate, my diploma will only show that I mastered a given curriculum. If you plan on going to grad school, my advice is to take what you most likely will learn in private study and apply it to an extracurricular project associated with your degree. This will make you a more attractive prospect.

Have you decided on a major yet? Sorry if you've already mentioned it. I haven't read the entire thread.

Never mind. I see that you are doing "computer science and programming."

So, I order to get the most out of my future time at university, I'd need to live on-campus?

I think I'm fine only having the partial experience then. I'm naturally (colloquially) anti-social anyway, not that I'd need any extra incentive to not live on-campus. I'll be a few grand out when I start and I do not need paying to live in on-site accommodation compounding said inevitable debt.
Hell, what exactly would I be missing?

I never lived on campus during college. It's nice to be able to go home to your own room without idiots keeping you up all night long with random noises through very thin walls. However, you do miss out on some good stories and memories. It's a good option to make a friend with someone who lives on campus, whose couch/floor you could crash on if something fun is happening. It's all up to you. I feel like I had a good time during college, even with living 20 minutes off campus.

To be honest... That really doesn't help me out when it comes to what I'd be missing out on. In case you missed it, I'm fairly dense regarding this sort of thing; what sorts of good stories, memories or fun I might have elude me.

You don't know it's a good story until you're in the moment or the event is over. The idea is to just be around Tongue

Living on campus would put you in a situation where you would be forced to socialize. This is something that I regret not doing over the last 4 years.

So there is a projected decrease in levels of forced social interaction by off-campus students as opposed the that of their on-campus counterparts?
