Do tell. Be sure not to fall behind, or else the works piles up absurdly fast and literally before you know it, it's near impossible to catch up.

It is a reality check for a lot of people. I think the most important thing you have to realize is that you need to grow up. High school is over. High school drama is over. Act like an adult, and be responsible for yourself. Show up to class, try to get the best grades possible. Do clubs that interest you, don't do clubs that don't. Meet people, have fun, but make sure you focus on doing well.

Basically.

College isn't that bad once you figure out that you can't skip a lot of classes and you have to do the homework unlike in high school.

If you apply yourself, you'll do well.

NYY, you basically said what needs to be said about college. The end.

Basically you can't **** around and put stuff off. I'm actually going to study with my roommate 3 nights a week for one class. Whether we think we know it or not.

High school is a breeze compared to college.

It's not so bad after a while. Eventually, you get kinda good at it.

You guys should try having 10 week quarters instead of semesters.
Week 5 is midterms. So yeah, your 10th class is when you have your midterm, depending on the professor.
Week 11 is finals week. You only have 20 classes, assuming you have class twice a week (which is how most of them are), each ~2 hours long, sometimes longer.



What are you guys currently taking, and what are you learning in them?


Me:
Networking Fundamentals
-Subnetting, supernetting
-Routing & switching basics
-Wireless principles (802.11; Differences between 802.11b, g, etc)
-The individual parts of packets & frames for Ethernet and 802.11
-PPP, PBX, Token Ring, ad hoc
-OSI Model: All the layers, focusing on layers 1-3
-TCP, IP, ICMP, ARP, etc.

OS Scripting
-bash programming; Example:
if [[ ! -f .logfile ]]; then ls > .logfile echo .logfile created for $1
else for x in `cat .logfile` do echo $x fi done fi
-grep, egrep Example:
ps -ef > temp | cut -f-3 -d" " | egrep '[a-z][a-z][a-z][0-9]+$'
-awk Example:
awk '{printf("%-15s %6.2f\n", $1, $2 * $3);}' file

Shakespeare on Stage
-Currently doing Hamlet
-Already did Romeo & Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Twelfth Night

Database
-Normalization: 1st Normal Form, 2nd Normal Form, 3rd Normal Form, and Boyce Codd Normal Form
-Relational notation
-ER models
-MySQL Example:
SELECT username.pbf, thread.lounge FROM pbf, lounge WHERE threadID.pbf = threadID.lounge AND username.pbf = "Jinjiro";

Human Factors
-This class is a joke. My professor is a hippy who told us we don't have to come to class if we don't want to, and will still probably get an A. He's so chill, and we get off on the best tangents for the longest time.

-Jin

So you weren't fighting ninjas?



And yeah, 3v1 fights are very homosexual. If you need two of your buddies to have enough courage to fight someone, then you have no business fighting.

Easy as pie, took AP in highschool

Math for liberal arts online
I needed a math elective, its a joke. I've logged in twice and have a 99 average and have only one more test and the final to finish up whenever I feel like it.

College is hard though.
calc II is straight gay. I just finished series, very pointless imo minus the taylor series.
