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!

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 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).
Listen. I'm sorry.

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.

Well, I chose it because it was a smaller school, had it's own campus (a uni in my city is integrated into downtown, not my thing) and was in/around a city. It also had a lot of trees and green space. And it gave me a lot of money.

I haven't really noticed how liberal it is, mostly because I'm liberal and it's mostly background radiation to me. But there is a presence of conservatives and religious community, mostly because of the Lutheran connection. But, it's not really a place full of "hippie" type of students. That's in places like Evergreen State College. I can't really say much to the "liberal" culture since I grew up in Portland, so it's really just a continuation of what I've been surrounded with anyway.

I go to the University of Manitoba, going into my 4th year studying music. behind_you also went here I think, but he's not really around the Pit anymore.

Shittiest thing is that being in Canada there's pretty much no collegiate sports at all. Bonus to that is there's also very few jocks around.

I don't live on campus or anywhere near campus so I never really had that "college experience." Not sure if I feel left out, but leaning towards I don't give a shit.

I'll start applying to grad schools soon, although I think I'll take a year off in between my undergrad and masters. Not sure where I want to go yet, but somewhere in a bigger city that Winnipeg that's for sure.

I'm a bio major. I think my concentration will be in Biomedical Sciences. Was gonna go with environmental bio and then I realized I don't want to do a master's in anything relating to biology (for now) so I chose something that has a bit more potential for employment and stuff. I'm probably graduating this year because I don't want to do an honors project in my 4th year but we'll see.

I'm also in the middle of getting a diploma in special needs education mostly because I find it interesting but I wouldn't mind working in that area either.

I want to do some further education but I don't know what. I've been thinking about patent law though.

Living on campus is so much better than not

Currently going to Indiana State University and majoring in psychology. I plan on going to University of Louisville for graduate school.

We had Larry Bird, and that's the highlight of my school's history. Although we're not exciting, our education, criminology, and PsyD programs are nationally ranked.

I'm currently attending Bucks County Community College for Cinema/Video.

Unless anything changes, like I die, or worse, fail math again, I will be going to Temple University after Christmas for broadcasting.

I started as a video game design major but no one ever passed that at Bucks and they never had the classes I needed. Luckily all the music recording classes I took transferred over into Cin/Vid. I don't want to make movies or nothing fancy like that. I really just want to operate a camera at a stadium. News would be cool to I guess.

When I go to Temple I'm going into the broadcasting program. I'm gonna claw and beg my way to a camera at one of the sports venues until somebody says I can carry cables. I really want to be paid to go to sports games. It's either that or ****ing retail. I really don't want to go back to retail.

I'm at University of Florida, majoring in electrical engineering and minoring in physics. I got a 2130 on my SAT (710 in all three parts, strangely) and won a National Merit scholarship. I'm basically going to have zero debt for my undergraduate degree (graduate is a different story though).

I just finished my fourth year, I've only got one class left for undergraduate so next semester I'm taking some graduate-level classes to get started on my master's degree (focusing on electromagnetics most likely). This summer I'm doing a paid internship with an energy company for the second straight summer, working on communication devices and microprocessor boards in their test lab. The guy that interviewed me was also a UF alumni, which probably helped me land the position.

Being a huge sports fan, it's pretty great being in Gainesville since we have good football and basketball programs. I live in an on-campus apartment that is literally across the street from the O'Dome (the basketball arena) and a lot of the basketball players live in the same complex.

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%].


I'm not going to be in university for at least a year so I shouldn't be posting in here, but I'm going to have to retake my SAT. I managed to only get a 1690. I didn't sleep at all the night before (bad excuse but it didn't help at all) so I managed to **** up the essay (I am very good at essay writing but I didn't finish writing it in time because I'm an idiot) and I accidentally filled out two sections in a row in the wrong place and couldn't copy them down in the correct section quickly enough.

So in short I am retaking the SAT because this is in my top fifty most humiliating experiences (it would be much higher if the SAT scores weren't a private thing).
