I Don't Like College

    Fresh Start?

    So, I've just begun the phase of my life that I've been dreaming about for the past 3 years. I got into my dream school and I was finally going to get that fresh start. But college wasn't how it was suppose to be. I was homesick, lonely, everyone around me acclimated so quickly...

    This is my second semester of college.  I feel the exact same way.  I am at a big private university and I just can't get myself to like it.  I feel depressed all the time, especially when i think how much time I have ahead of me.  I love my friends at home...

    We're All Just Kids

    I wanted to go to college to learn, and I thought higher education would mean people who were more focused on academics. Unfortunately most students here seem even more immature than the people at high school. Everyone, especially freshmen, are overly concerned with how cool they...

    I Expect Nothing.

    I left college two years ago with two years of study under my belt. During that time, I pursued practical training in a variety of fields, moved across the country, and tried to make a full and satisfying life for myself in what I perceived to be 'the real world'. This fall, I...

    I'm driving myself mad,

    I'm going back to college tomorrow after two months off for Christmas break and I'm dreading it. I live 2 hours away but I get extremely homesick. And it's not an option for me to go home whenever I want because it's too much hassle. I just can't stop thinking. Thinking about...

    Maybe It's Not For Everyone...

    I got into a good college, but it hasn't been a happy experience. The weekends used to be fun because there would be small concerts on campus. But now the bands suck and you can't dance to them, and they don't come as often. Classes used to be more interesting, but I'm...

     For those dedicated to the idea of going into a feild like medicine, I understand many years of college. For those looking for an edge in the work world, it also makes sense. For the academics of advanced maths, sciences, and specialized feilds, it makes sense. For becoming...

    College Is Pretty...meh

    Most likely because I live at home, and because I keep to myself. I don't have much of a desire to make friends or participate in activities. It's kind of like high school all over again, only without all the teasing and rampant idiocy (even the teachers at my high school weren't...

    I Thought It Would Be Better

    I just started college and so far I hate it. I have good roommates and I'm going out to all of the social events but for some reason, I feel lonelier than I ever have. No one that I know from high school goes to my school. I had this impression that the students in college were...

    It's Not Like I Hate It, But...

    It's not like I hate college. In fact, there are some parts of the past three years that have been good, even great on ocassion. Still, I have never been able to really find my place in college, and I have never really loved it. I loved high school. I didn't always like the...
