Hello Pit, my first day at college begins in about 2 hours and I was wondering if there was anything I should expect or need to know about it. I only have one class (90 minutes) today, so I'll get a taste of what to expect in the coming week (I have 5 classes total).

Any tips or pointers for the starting college student?

Chat people up, get to know people. Don't be that guy who just sits by himself and write down what everyone says so he can use it later to pick up girls over facebook and make it look like he really knows the girls even though he doesnt and probably shoud practice on his social skills instead of writing down what people says because he is really missing something basic about attraction.

Reciting your traumatic years at college there?
I think its time to pack your things lets go,
To a place where we both know,
And dont worry, I'll drive real slow,
Spend some time before we go..

Punctuation boy, I almost died just reading that passage. I dread to think reading it aloud.

Get to know people. Don't be shy. I went to college with plenty of friends but still tried my best to make new ones.

About classes, well... I can't say I gave my best there but it was all worth it for some other things that happened and that were so much better than classes so... Get your sh*t together and prepare for some of the best years of your life

Actually, the lack of punctuation was intentional.

Good point there, oh how I wish the good ol' College days of being around my friends, getting so close to touching some boob and then the Jocks throw a ball at your head and ruin the rest of your life...












Is only 14 and has never been to College.

Study hard, socialise, dont be a class clown

If you get great grades in your first year, 2nd year would be easy for you

Talk to people in your classes. You will be ****ed for the year if you don't. I'm deadly serious, make sure you talk to everyone in your classes.

Also work. You want to set a good precedent for work.

don't believe the movies. I just graduated not too long ago, and i did not encounter a single thing from the movies. college is work, hard work. and unless you want to waste your time and money, try your hardest.

also, if you school has a music program, hang around that building make friends with the kids and profs. most of the time if the school has a music dept, they have practice rooms students can get keys to. that way you can setup a band, or at least not annoy your roommate with your constant scale practicing (that metronome starts to piss me off even when i'm playing along with it).

Work hard, study hard, have some fun and make friends. College is not so much about the classes you take or the grades you get, its about the people you meet and the different experiences you have. Don't be overly serious, and you'll have a great time.

i'm supposed to be moved-in right now at vcu, but i just dropped my stuff there and went back home to party before classes start thursday.

i have less than 3 days before studying all over again

Don't take everything too seriously. Lecturers will try scare you with lots of bull****

Don't be quiet and reserved (like I am). You'll not get anywhere that way. University has many associations and clubs, join up.

Don't drink Stroh rum. Ever.

In the end, have fun, okay? That's important. Have fun and just get your work done on time, and give yourself at least 1.5 days before tests for studying.
