How's the second year of college or second year out of college or second year out of high school going ?

I'm pretty decent, it's nice to make fun of the freshman again.

Summer is here and it will leave just as fast as it got here. How was everyones first year? Can you believe how fast it went?

I stayed in my hometown and attened a community college. Today driving by the road my best friend from high school lives on i found myself suprised at how much time we have spent together. Through the year everytime she was in town i was at her house (sometimes before she even got there) now that she is home from school for the summer we are not spending any time together. I guess most of us are going through this but i just wanted to see how many others are! I feel guilty because now we have time to spend together and i have so many other things i rather do. I guess we are just drifting apart....

So I was just browsing and thinking about this community.  How did each one of your first year of either college or work or whatever it is that you did go for you?  Did you gain the infamous "freshman fifteen", did you finally break out of your shell and become more outgoing?  How was the workload for everyone?

For me I had a blast this year.  It's crazy but I can't believe that the first year is over for me just about in a week.  Today was the last day of classes and now Finals start on Thursday for us.  I must say though that I am going to miss so many people in my dorm, I've made amazing friends and I can't believe that we've only been in school for 9 months but I felt like I knew them my entire life.  I must say I didn't change that much though, stayed the same but did become a little bit more outgoing and I didn't gain the freshman fifteen which I must say I am happy about.

I, too, have a question just out of curiosity, haha. We're all done with our first semester/trimester/quarter of college and well underway on our second term (except if you have a short term like me, and you might be on a break between J-term and Spring semester!) We've grown out of our homesickness (hopefully!), made new friends, and are participating in exciting new things.

So now that we all (hopefully) have acclimated and are able to see the pros and cons of our chosen college in a more objective light, who among us is transferring? Hahaha :) It'd be cool just so we could all know we're not alone!

I'll start -- my name is Joy from Chicagoland and I'm officially a sophomore (but I did graduate high school in 2007, I promise I belong here lol) at Hollins University in Roanoke, VA. I'm hoping to transfer to Lawrence University in Appleton, WI for the fall trimester. I'm transferring out because my school is REALLY small (<800 students. My graduating class size from hs > my school's total undergraduate enrollment), I hate the location, find the social life lacking (suitcase school -- at least half of the school leaves on the weekends), and find that a lot (but not all) of the students there are not people I would never associate myself with. Classes are also waaaay easier than they were in high school and that bothers me since the other two colleges I was debating between attending are known for very rigorous and demanding workloads (Bryn Mawr College and Reed College.) Those are just a few of the reasons I'm planning on transferring.


Anyone else? :)

We are all about done with our first semester of college.

How was it? Bad/good/not worthy?

It was fine, excpet the whole issue regarding English, but it's not too bad.

Stories? Tragdies? Comedies? Any ancdotes?
