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?

If you live off campus, the only time you will have forced social interaction is during school hours. Living on campus would insure that you see your classmates outside of class. Then again, it really helps to go into college knowing people beforehand. Friends would introduce you to a wider social circle. I didn't know anyone at my university when I first started, and I still don't technically know anyone a part from a few professors and some class acquaintances.

You could join clubs or groups for things that interest you and meet people that way. Even if you're not extremely social, it can be beneficial to have some connections later on.

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.

That is a lot of adjustment you have in front of you but you'll be fine. You have the intelligence and the maturuity to deal with it all.

If you need help with math, I think getting to a tutor sooner rather than later will help. I tutored math and accounting. When people came to us when they started having problems it was eaiser to get them up to speed. Please don't be the one that comes in 3 days before finals and says "I'm having a problem with this course" and then proceeds to open the text to chapter 1.

To be honest, that restricted forced social time seems like a major bonus to me considering how... Uncomfortable... I am when interacting with others (out side of maybe three or four close associates... and two teachers).

And I do know two people attending the university, but I doubt I'll ever see them again; caught them both once this year and haven't seen them since. I got one's phone number but it seems it's no longer his...

I haven't heard of any club I'd care to join, as if making such a move would be possible for me to begin with.

Rolleyes Get your ass out the door and go find one. Something you've never considered before. Hiking club changed my life at uni. But there are lots to choose from.

Social stuff... it depends on if you're happy where you are now, not being very social, or if you want to be able to socialize with people. If you *do* want to socialize then a club is a good way to meet people and do things together that you all enjoy - you will make friends easier that way.

But another important thing is to use uni/college time as a time to really expand your horizons. If you do the same old stuff you've always done... you're missing out on an opportunity...

RE: YA BOY IS GOING TO COLLEGE
I feel pretty overwhelmed and I'm a bit nervous to take on tomorrow. One of the books I need tomorrow I still haven't gotten. I rented it, but they didn't have it in stock yet so they're supposed to call me tomorrow. I just hope they call me early enough because the class I need the book for it at 2.

Also I should be getting my laptop and office pro programs this Friday. I get a discount via a friend who works at TSYS, and I get office pro for $10. That will be very helpful seeing as a lot of my assignments are online, and I already have homework for an essay for my English class.

Fuck fuck fuck.

Social life isn't really an issue for me. I have a small group of friends that I'm content with, and not eager to expand. Unfortunately, once I get a job my social life may become a bit thin.

Sad

Growing up is awful.

I sympathize, but it really isn't awful. You are in the transition zone - it's uncomfortable there.

It's definitely going to take some time to get used to. Sad

Yes - that it will. However, there are good times involved, too. Yes
