Hey everyone! How is your school/college year going so far?

Im loving college at the moment, this university is all i could ask for. XD and the women here make it even better. Maintaining a 3.5 GPA too (ive given up on a 4 atm.. biology major is busting my ass)

good for you, keep it up, may as well keep on going with a good finish.

I am graduating this november 1, stressed, but I gotta do what I gotta do.

It's my Freshman year, so I guess I've been doing fine. Mid terms are coming up, but I'm not stressing out too much. The campus is easy to navigate and the prof. are willing to help you. The only thing I hate here is the admissions and the financial aid office, who give you a hard time to do pretty much everything.

Terrible, college is a remedial High School.

I hated this aspect of college life. My parents couldn't financially support me for college, so financial aid played a crucial role in funding my education.

Most of the advisors acted so high and smug, because they knew students were at their mercy in terms of how much grants and sub and unsubbed loans, work study, etc. they received.

I still remember long lines, uncomfortable personal questions asked, judgmental looks, etc.

Just got back to college a couple months ago and it's been pretty smooth sailing so far. Can't wait to get my degree and land a job anywhere but this horrible state. >.<

But it's good to hear you're keeping up a good average. Keep on working hard like that and you'll have your degree in no time.

It's going alright, i'm maintaining a decent GPA and have yet to fail a class. Thanks to my cocktail of race/sex/economic status i've been able to amass a small collection of scholarships which has covered most of my tuition, which is nice because otherwise i'd have dropped out to avoid being forced to take a bunch of student loans.

I'm not entirely sure what i'm going to do once I get my degree, while I enjoy my major (history) I can't see what i'm going to do with it since I have no desire to teach. I've thought about dropping out and looking for a higher paying job but I can't see any real reason to due so since i'm already working full time and am at a comfortable place in my life right now.

Gotta say I enjoy the social aspect though, as an unaffiliated girl who knows someone in every major fraternity and organization on campus I get invited to everything. It's a shame I dislike the sororities here (draconian rule + head games = no thank you) because i'd love to go Greek.

The lines are ridiculous and the advisors here act like they don't know what the fuck they're doing. At my college, there are 2,000 students who've suddenly found themselves dropped from their classes because there is "another step" in the financial aid process that they didn't know about.

Quite terrible goings as of late. I might have to right off this Intro to Chemistry class im in and withdraw from it at the community college I'm in. I hate it with a passion. I'm hoping Biology next semester might be easier since I never took chemistry in highschool. Not to mention I have 2 online classes that start in mid October, and I've never done an online class before.

I'm seriously reconsidering majoring in computer science for the simple fact that I don't enjoy science classes all that much. The university I want to enroll in here in Florida requires University physics with calculus 1 and 2, and 2 classes for science majors. I'm really getting discouraged with all this. It feels like I'm going nowhere
