    I'm in my third semester of college

    and I absolutely hate it. I mean yes you get to meet incredible people and learn great new things but I'm starting to think college is not for me. I had such a difficult time this semester and it truly felt as if it was never ending. I did make it out alive so I shouldn't...

    sociology course that is a research assignment based on a comparison of two cultures or subcultures. I figure most students will choose obvious cultures such as Mexican, African American etc. , so I figure choosing subcultures would be more interesting for my professor to read...

    So, tomorrow, I will be heading back to school! I'm beyond excited to be leaving home and being out on my own experiencing life. I told myself that once I go off this time that's a sign of me leaving the nest. My goal is to not come back home. My first college experience was a...

    I think going to a four year college is a bit

    overrated. I think there is a big scam to swindle money from broke college kids. I think that all of the general education courses are pointless and time consuming.

    I am a student in College.

    I just started. I have been thinking about opening up to new people. Different people. In such a sense as fashion, style, music, food, interest. I am an open minded person. I want to explore more than what I have been. I want to expand my friend group. So who is down?

    It's ******* hard, they make it out to be easy

    and simple but going college is a big step. I admire anyone who takes the time to give it the work that it takes. I know firsthand how difficult it is. I figured I would meet more opened minded people, or people with alternative lifestyles and all of that but so far it hasn't...

    I am disappointed by the amount of students

    who rarely go to class or just party all the time. I go to my university to learn and expand my experiences, as well as to meet other individuals who share in my interests. Yet, so many of the people at my school are getting so drunk and drugged up. My school had 13 deaths in...
