SomeCallMeTim: #11. Not all of you are "college material" and will wind up wearing a paper hat and name tag asking people if they want fries with that.
flypusher713: So right about the squirrels. I'll tease the Squirrels at Rice by clicking at them, but giving them no food when they come over.
wildcardjack: eas81: Your dorm is going to suck:[www.collegetocareers.com image 450x338]I couldn't even lay down on a bed that short. I'd like to talk with a lawyer about this college discriminating against tall people in their accommodations.
PrinceCole: They are right about the campus police. The ones on my campus were terrible. One time when my book bag (with all my expensive textbooks and graphing calculator) was stolen I found two witnesses and tracked down culprit for them. They didn't do squat./still bitter
Gough: #11 You'll meet new people and forge life-long friendships with them. Those friendships will be forged in the crucible of a pretty intense four years and will likely surpass the ones you had in the first 18 years.
A Non Amos: Quick! Someone find the guy who wrote that article, capture him, and drag him over to Fark!
Gothnet: 5. Don't feel bad if you get homesick. At least half of your friends that keep raving about how much they love their first semester of college are totally lying.I must have been part of the other half then, I never looked back.Thanks to movies and television (again), many of us have been conditioned to believe that the undergraduate college experience has be the best 4 years of our lives from Day 1This was absolutely true fro me, sorry if y'all sucked at it.8. The college parties you see in the movies very rarely happen. A typical "party" will instead consist a lot of people standing around in a dimly lit house/back yard and drinking terrible beer.And when you're 18/19 and around a whole bunch of stimulating new people, that is every bit as awesome, maybe awesomer. At that age you can talk about inconsequential shiat for days at a time and think it's the deepest thing in the world.10. There will be people with easy majors that never seem to go to class and have all the free time in the world. Do not envy them.Meh, some of us did hard courses, skipped classes and still came out with a good qualification :-PGothnet's verdict - Author of TFA did it wrong.
SomeCallMeTim: #11. Not all of you are "college material" and many of you who are, nevertheless, will wind up wearing a paper hat and name tag asking people if they want fries with that.
TheGreatGazoo: The dorm room is smaller than my bathroom and I had to share it with someone.

Mellow_1: I don't agree with the college parties being lame. We partied at the frat houses. There would literally be 40 cases or more of beer stacked up the wall, with the pledges handing everything out. There would be at least a couple rooms where the questionable "trashcan punch" was being handed out to the ladies who didn't like beer. And of course, who could forget dancing to songs like "The Thong Song" or "Pussy Control?" Every Thursday, my girlfriends and I would make the circuit, walking from the dorms to at least 3 or 4 frat houses and then back again. It seemed like back then, we were also mostly immune to the infamous hangover, so there was nothing holding us back.I think the parties this author is talking about, are the ones where people sit around and smoke pot while playing video games.
KrispyKritter: there should be a separate list for those not college bound. the college students face a different reality than the HS graduates who are jumping right into the cesspool of life.
