I see. This will make things a bit easier. Most Junior colleges dont have dorms. (mine did, but its an oddball) So you may not have to worry about all that sort of thing until you get to Uni. If you dont have one already, get a driver's license.

Ours has dorms as well, and I'm trying to convince my parents to let me move into them second semester with a few friends I have living there. I already have my drivers license, and since it's a junior college, all freshman are allowed to drive their cars. So no worries there.

Re: Starting College in Two Days!!

You need to study. If you don't have to study in a class, or you're not working your ass off somehow then you're wasting time. The only excuse is trying to fill extra curricular classes which should also help benefit yourself other than a letter. Don't take the easy classes solely for an A unless your GPA is really hurting. Even if you get a terrible grade in a hard class, you're still better off because no one cares you got an B in Media Theory and Practices, they care that you can show your understanding of how to research and program better media.

I regret not being able to fulfill a BS due to me being stupid freshman year, but even if you're a high goal setter missing one or two requirements isn't the end of the world just keep getting more and more experience.

Do push ups, sit ups, and walk. Don't oversleep or undersleep.

You are so lucky to have that kind of experience.

Re: Starting College in Two Days!!

I smoke joints european style...

Anyway, the best advice I can offer is, if you're living in a Halls of Residence or whatever the general american equivalent, don't expect the facilities to be in perfect condition, the ovens may be faulty, the hobs may not work properly, the toaster might short circuit the entire kitchen or maybe the floor you're on, depending on the quality of wiring in the building. You will get to know the authority responsible for maintenance very well. There will be parties on your floor, regardless of whether you want to sleep or not, you'll just have to put up with it. Generally, the people living with you will be friendly, but they will come from different cultures and you may find it hard to bond with you, which could get messy if you don't learn to put your differences aside.

My advice: read the textbook before class, don't sleep in class, and do all the homework. Other than that, have fun!

Re: Starting College in Two Days!!

A supposedly more accurate "Freshman Fifteen".

As someone who public transports to a TAFE in Australia rather than dorms at a college in America, I can't really attest to the accuracy of any of it, but he seems to know what he's talking about for this kind of stuff.

Re: Starting College in Two Days!!

Duke, I really liked that.
I'm still trying to figure out how much of it is true, though.
