I was wondering how is college life like? Do you have any interesting college stories?

With the amount of work and studying needed to be done at the end of a semester, it felt like this:

For a freshman it's lots of basic coursework, making friends, cramming for tests, and pulling all nighters to finish that 15 page course paper you started the day before it's due.

Each university has it's own regional uniqueness. For large cities, you feel like one beer in a hundred cases - all crammed together, but doing your own thing. For colleges in rural areas, there's less on campus or close-by so other students tend to mettle. Experienced both myself. Also, be wary of being too avant-garde with your papers - professors tend to dislike 'spin' on their courses. And sleep will be a thing of the past.

It was sooo much fun!

Each class is different depending on the professor, since there really isn't any "standardized" lesson plan. The most "unique" class I took was Introduction to Logic. We got to two weeks before the final and people were starting to get anxious since we had not had any tests during the semester. That was when the professor told us that the final was 100% of the grade since it was how you passed the finish line that counted.

Some colleges are very easy to get into (mostly state supported colleges), but they use certain mandatory classes to weed out those who can't do the work. It makes a certain amount of sense because they gave everyone a chance to make something of themselves.

be good at what you want to do

find professors that know what you are good at ask them for job recommendations

do internships

learn how to write a resume

unless you are working for intel or nasa or med school grades do NOT matter just need to graduate

if you are pre-med and decide you do not want to go to med school, it is very difficult to change carrier paths after you have chosen a biology major(because of the needed classes for med school) and have done most of what needs to be done for med school, because you have NOT done the other stuff mention above

--

I think a lot of potential college students, today, are fed the fact going to college is good for you, like you end up with your dream job. The whole truth, in my opinion, is listed above.

Essays (lots of them), speeches, talking in front of the class, group work (the one I hate the most)

For someone with social anxiety, that's a nightmare.
