College


College is an awesome place at an awesome time in your life. You spend your prime years studying what you want to do for the rest of your life, or what you think you'd like to do. even if it's not practical (Peace Studies) or if it can even get you a job (Philosophy). You learn a lot academically and about life. You learn to be responsible by being irresponsible. It gives you experiences on which to make judgement in later life.

Yet there are many aspects of college that people miss out on. Some drop out, don't make friends, get a degree in something cool but useless or in something they realize they don't want to do at all. Some people just don't enjoy college because it's not the place for them or they simply do not do enough.

I know that I wanted to do a lot more in my first year than I actually did. I made a bunch of friends and pulled through my grades like I always do, but I feel I could have done so much more. I wish I was more active in school clubs/life/politics. I should have done more hw and got a job and less dicking around. And talked to more women, ah, the women.

What's one thing that you wish you did/did more in College today?

College, Cool Beans?

  1. Like you, I wish I would have gotten more involved socially. I went to school in my hometown so I feel like I didn't really get the best college experience. Also, every other day I wonder if I should have stuck with my original major of anthropology.

  5. I feel like I've done pretty well in college so far. With six semesters under my belt, I have a 3.87 GPA, member of Phi Thetta Kappa, I like my major, I make friends easily, & I've had a job 5/6 semesters (curse summer session!). The only thing I dislike is my long as hell commute - 45 minutes each way, on the bus, at 630 am. Ugh.
