Assuming you went to college, what was your first day like? Did you stay in-state or go out-of-state? Did you talk to your roommate before hand so you already knew them by the time you moved in?

I'm moving in on the 15th of Aug. and it's going to be the start of a new life for me, so I'd like to know the Pit's experiences.

I had my first day about a year ago, only a month 'till I'm back in class. I met my roommate a couple of weeks beforehand, we hung out and got to know each other before classes started, he's still a good friend of mine.

The first day of class however, the first person I met was one of the bitchiest sorority girls I know, and the second person I met is the guy who I now consider the best friend I've ever had. It was crazy and a little weird doing everything for myself for the first couple days but the people you meet in college become like a second family because you're all going through this growing up stage together. Trust me, the first day is a good time, I have some fun memories of my first classes that I won't get into now.

EDIT: And I went in state technically, my family had just moved to a new state though so it felt like I was going to an out of state school anyway.

I went in state to college, but it was out of my hometown. My freshman year i knew my roommate at time and it was cool because he was a friend. The first day of orientation stuff he broke his leg trying to flirt with a girl, who turned out to be a *****, so it was pretty funny. As far as classes it was just here's the syllabus, teacher goes over it and you leave.

Went to all of my classes, only to find out that the first day of classes in your freshman year is just listening to your professor tell you what you're going to be doing for the rest of the semester, then left. I'm pretty damn drunk right now, I hope that made sense, I'm taking every precaution while typing.

all the girls where topless, and all of the professors were hot females and I was the only guy.


oh wait, that was my dream last night. I'm not in college yet
#13
It was good, I guess. Met a LOT of people whose names I didn't remember ten minutes later, ate a lot of food at the dining commons. General stuff.

I guess it was great? I don't remember.

It seems that noone's had a bad, first day of college. I guess I'll stock up on a couple of items (*wink, wink*) to ensure a pleasant and entertaining time.

Just like high school except I went to class at 11:30 instead of 7:00 in the morning.

My bad. I'm slightly more sober now, so I read the first post. I'm in state, at Wayne State, in Detroit, MI. I don't have a room mate here, but I do live with my girlfriend, if that counts. I also started late. I'm 22 years old now, and going into my Sophomore year. College is amazing, in my opinion. If you love learning, then you'll love college. You'll learn SO much. Not just academically, but also life experiences. Hm...let me think this over and get back here in the morning.

went to a party
got extremely wasted
dodged the cops
one of my female friends received an offer to star in a porno
the cab ride back to campus: the driver looked like the dude from the big lebowski and he had one of those disco ball-thingy that displayed different colored lights everywhere in the cab. while we were drunk off our asses. it was epic.

so yeah that was my first day at college. went out of state. tried talking to my roommate but he was extremely antisocial, didn't bring anything to the dorm, and just sat at his computer all day and played runescape... that was unfortunate.

No I hadn't met my housemates yet. It was all-Ireland hurling final day so I went to watch that with the two of my flatmates who had arrived. Then went over to my gf's house when she arrived and then we all went to a house party.

Well my first day at uni was pretty cool.

Got up early, packed the car, drove off down to uni, picked up my key, spent all afternoon unpacking stuff into my uni room, eventually my housemates rolled up as well so we got chatting for a bit but they had to finish unpacking so i sat around with some music on etc.

Then once they were done we all got together in the kitchen and just got talking about like, who we were, where we were from what we liked etc. then cooked a meal together for the first time and just went to get drunk.

Was awesome, i met 3 of the greatest people ever that night and they're still my best friends to this day.

The real trick to your first day is just take a bundle of cash out, don't even think about how much ur spending, just get stuck in and enjoy every second of it. Also, be the person who knocks on ur housemates door saying hey, fancy a beer? No point in sitting waiting for other people!

Oh and don't let people loose with felt pens, on our first day we had blank t shirts everyone could write on, i ended up with a rly cool scribbled on t-shirt with loads of girls numbers n stuff, but try explaining the felt pen messages up my arms the day after cus they'd run out of room on the t shirt :S

I forgot to bring my class timetable with me. That's all I remember, for some reason. I think that means that it wasn't horribly scarring.

This chick noticed I was playing Pokemon Red on my Gameboy Color, she traded my level 69 Onix for a level 69 Aerodactyl, then she proceded to perform fellatio on me, then we had intercourse

I don't know yet. It will be in a few weeks. All I know is that I'm just gonna go and sit next to the cutest, lonely looking girl in the classroom and I'm going to befriend her immediately. I just plan on trying to be really friendly and social.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

I think it was a very long day. It was really hot outside and I remember getting a ticket for something really stupid. I don't remember much, it was almost 3 years ago.

I move in on thursday, im kinda scared but ill get over it. All of my friends are gone and im bored as **** but they have told me some awesome stories.

One friend went out and got hammered with his parents and went to a concert with a ton of people from his dorm.
Another friend went to 4 keggers and said it was one of the craziest nights of his life.
But everyone ive talked to said college is awesome so far and it blows high school out of the water.

i had never met my roommate before moving in the first day so it was the boring small talk and whatnot at first. he went out to dinner with his parents that day and since i didnt know anyone else, i started walking down to the dinning hall by myself. what else was i going to do starve?

as i got to the front door of the dorm, i heard someone behind me say, 'hey are you going to the dinning hall?'. 'yeah' i said. 'do you know anyone else here?' he asked. 'nope, not really' i said. 'cool, you care if i go with you down to the dinning hall?'. 'no not at all'.

turned out the kid lived two rooms down from me and was an amazing bassist. i ended up hanging out with him for the rest of the day (and pretty much the rest of the first semester). there was a dorm meeting after dinner that everyone had to go to which basically consisted of the RD telling us how people die because they over-drink, how drugs will get you into alot of trouble at the school, and how if youre thinking about selling drugs you'll get hunted down and kicked out (lol). ironically, at the meeting we heard from some other people about freshmen frat parties that were going on that night and found out there was some guy that drove this bus around and took you to them. so that night we got on the 'drunk bus' and went to a frathouse.

it was a real shitshow. everyone was hammered, and every girl at the party was looking to give it up to any joe that showed half an interest in her. half the guys there were probably still shy virgins (myself included ) so not many guys actually went up to girls and hit on them. i think the mistake that alot of freshmen make is that they dont talk to enough people. if you sit in your room waiting for people to come talk to you, you probably wont make very many friends to begin with.

anyways, we stayed at the frat party until 1 or 2am until they started kicking everyone out. then we rode the drunk bus back to the dorms, smoked some weed, ordered pizza, and passed out.

all in all, it was a pretty good day and i met a ton of people. i didnt remember 95% of the names of everyone that i met, but it at least gave me some familiar faces that i could go up to and start a conversation with at a later point. i stayed good friends with the kid i met the first day for the first semester, but then we started hanging out with different circles of friends. we're still friends today, but i probably only see him once or twice a month at random parties. i never became that good of friends with my roommate. i dont know if it was just because we were pretty different people or what, but we would talk for a few minutes when we were both in the room, but most of the time we would just kinda do our own thing and not say much. its not like we didn't get along or anything, but we just didnt really hang out or socialize that much.

Well I don't know where you're from but I go to uni in the US. First week was a bit stressful..trying to figure out feeding myself and finding new friends. But after you get settled it's all fun man. Live it up while you can. Trust me, the only time being an alcoholic is considered ok is when you are in college. Live life to the fullest while you're there.
