The University Thread!

Are you between the ages of 16 to 90 and are enrolled in post-secondary education? Tell us all about it. I couldn't believe that there wasn't a dedicated college/university thread already, so we're gonna make it a thing.

It's summer, and most of us are either out of school or taking summer classes. I myself miss my campus already, so I'm excited to talk about and reminisce with you all.

Suggested discussion topics include:
- what school you're hoping to attend, where you're currently enrolled, which schools you've attended in the past
- your major, coursework, GPA, SAT/ACT scores, financial aid, etc.
- dorms, apartments, roommates, living conditions, transportation
- the party you went to last night, the drunk guy that threw your bike into a tree, that cute girl that gave you her number (it was fake anyway)
- special features and campus spots that make your school great
- sports, clubs, athletics, etc.
- anything else you can possibly find interesting about your school


Let's share our stories, experiences, and guidelines of campus life!

I got a 2100 on my SATs. Be jealous.

Next year I'm either going to U of Manchester [70% chance], U of Sheffield [15%], or McGill [15%].

Well, consider me a weird dude looking in through the window, because I'm enrolled in an online university (the shame), American Military University, in order to work towards a degree while continuing my actual job.

If anyone cares, which they don't, I'm halfway towards a BS in Space Studies, which is actually a really cool degree, but it'll be awhile before I finish it since I can only take so many classes a year.

I'm starting my fourth and last year of university and I can't wait to leave.

University seemed like a party that you couldn't wait to be invited to because everyone was going to go.

Now it's like a huge party full of people you can't stand and you can't find the exit.

I study Psychology at Laurentian University and am planning to do my masters in clinical psychology with a specialization in neuropsychology.

I also made the decision to do summer school, although I wish I didn't.

I got to Ohio State with a major in Chemical Engineering and a minor in Spanish. It's great over here. I'm taking classes right now.

Hopefully I'll be going abroad next year and then doing a co-op. So that's a year off from school, but I need the money/soul searching.

I go to Pacific Lutheran University, majoring in History. I'm president of my hall's Residence Hall Council and Vice President of my school's Swing Club.

Our school has an amazing music department, especially the vocal department. It's a very liberal school with a strong LGBTQ community, despite being tied to a church, which is already pretty liberal as far as churches go anyway.

We have an Upper and Lower campus. Upper campus can be roughly described as more studious, "nerdy" and humanities and arts oriented. Lower campus is where most of the sports teams and party people live, which the business, computer and phys. ed. departments located there.

Anyone else want to share some interesting tid bits of their "campus culture?"

EDIT: Oh, and my school LOVES it's Norwegian heritage. Also, the first president actually went panning for gold to support the school.

I went to Indiana University, graduated in 2012. I majored in East Asian Language & Culture ... hold the weeb comments--I actually don't watch anime or read manga. Except for Evangelion that's my shit. I took mostly history classes and language courses, my favorite course was actually an grad student course that I did when I got back from study abroad where we all just translated whatever book we wanted every day. I translated Ningen-Isu (The Human Chair) by Edogawa Rampo, which is a cool creepy quick read if you're ever in the mood for some weird stuff.

I lived in the dorm freshman year as was mandatory, lived in apartments after that. I'm basically not friends with anyone I met in the dormitory. Dormitories are gay. Well actually they're half decent for meeting girls, but once you bang one then everyone one the floor finds out and it limits your selection.

I partied all the time and never had to spend much time on schoolwork. It's because my major was really easy--for me at least. It's definitely not as hard as engineering or whatever hard shit some people learn in university. I graduated in 4 years unlike all my friends. Always went to class even if I wasn't prepared. Always turned something in even if it sucked. D's get Degrees, right? Also it's not like my diploma is going to help me much short of having IU written on it.

Study abroad was probably the coolest thing I did in university. Went to Doshisha university in the city I live now Kyoto. Honestly it's so easy to get laid in Japan if you're white. It's pretty easy to get laid at any university, but christ at Doshisha all I had to do was walk up say hi and invite a girl to my apartment. Though I did get away with something as simple a few times at IU.

My favorite thing about IU was the bar scene. I know most college towns have a good bar scene, but even so. My favorite bar was called House Bar, which actually just used to be a house that students lived in up till some years ago when they converted it into a bar. But it's still just a house. It has like furniture in it, and it's filled with board games to play. And it has a back area where you can smoke and stuff, which is cool because most bars Bloomington do not allow smoking. But of course as is true with any big 10 school there are loads of awesome house parties happening all the time at IU as well.

at Doshisha University I was in a 'light music circle', but basically it was just a club where we all formed cover bands and played concerts for each other. I was in a group that covered a Japanese mathcore band called Arbus (they're really good if you haven't heard them) and it was loads of fun.

Now that I'm a workin stiff I really miss university. Definitely the best time of my life, just like everyone says. Any questions about IU? point them this way! Bloomington is definitely a better place to live than West Lafayette (Purdue).

Starting my A2 Coursework at the moment in college.

I'm almost 100% that i'll be going to Bangor Uni if any and to study Media (because what else?)

Only problem is that I might not get enough UCAS points after my two years of college so having to do an extra year would piss me off.

I don't care for night life at all, I don't drink or do drugs at all, and with Bangor being a really small town it would suit me, plus not far from home. Would be cool getting into surfing too maybe.

And with me being Welsh and my financial situation, I won't have any debt at all

How do you like going to a really liberal school?

When I was going through the process of applying to places, I realized I would HATE it. I'm a 'free thinker' and someone 'who likes too march to the beat of their own drummer' but I would hate to be surrounded by nothing but people who are just like me. Subsequently I only applied to massive state schools.
