So, it's well into August. This means the influx of 'What should I take to my dorm,' and 'What should I expect at uni?' threads are soon to come. So, to counteract this, let's get this thread going as an overall place to discuss university business.

Subjects include:
-Applications
-Course Recommendations
-What to take to your dorm/apartment
-What to expect from classes
-University Recommendations
-Anything else University Related.


Go ahead and start posting away, fellow students. I'm a Kinesiology Major at the University of Wisconsin. Go Badgers.

Somebody had a picture of a triangle with either Good Grades, Social Life, Sleep in each corner and it says pick two.

That adequately sums up college.

My university sent me an email saying my application for on-campus accommodation was unsuccessful, and so if a place doesn't come up I'm going to have to haul ass down there (three hours away if traffic is good) in order to look for a place to stay. Sigh.

Going to a community college right now, but am going to transfer to Temple in Philadelphia next fall.

For anyone entering college this year, I would say get good grades your first year because it's ridiculously easy. At least for me it was. I've heard it gets pretty tough after the first two or three semesters though.

My aunt graduated from there, it's ridiculously expensive, and even more for you if you're out of state.

I'm a sophomore at Central Washington University. I do electrical engineering and am getting a science honors degree. It's really tough, but fun.

I graduated last year. Bachelors degree in history.


I'm planning to go to grad school at some point. Possibly next fall. I have to decide what I want to pursue. I'm thinking either continuing with something in history, or maybe international relations.

Seriously.


I managed to go out 2-3 nights a week, sleep enough most nights, and get good grades.


It really wasn't very difficult.

For Biology/Chemistry majors

First year is easy, get a 3.5 or higher GPA. Second year is also easy, however you will experience the first 'hard' class of your life, Organic Chemistry. It's not too difficult though, if freshman chemistry is a 3/10, then Ochem is a 6/10. First time you will have to actually study a lot, so it's considered a 'weeding out' class.

Third and fourth year are where the real studying begins. Makes Ochem look like a joke. I would sleep on the floor because my bed was covered in notebooks and papers week before exams.

Overall, school is pretty easy as long as you study hard. If you don't have a job, start looking into researching with professors and joining Pre-*YOUR MAJOR* clubs to prepare for graduate school and interviews.

I'll be moving into my dorm on the 27th. Freshman at Roanoke college, double major in music/creative writing. I'm essentially studying to be one of those hobos who spews poetry and plays guitar whilst being ignored by people with real jobs.

Maybe, if you're extremely German.
Although replace "social life" with "internets" and I could say I got 2.5

Also, if anyone is going to uni in the UK, don't go to Nottingham, or you'll run into me and awkwardness will ensue.
