    Dude, then get off the goddam internets where the rest of us old folks are, find yourself a bottle of cheap booze, and go ahead and go apeshit.

    Good times will follow, and they'll be funny.

    College is fucking amazing. I'm gonna be a senior this year, and believe me, dorm life is amazing and super worth it. Still, you are really early, around here, nobody goes back until the week before labor day.

    Gosh darn it, it's very uncommon to live in a dorm in this country - only really people from overseas or country towns do. I've never had the true "college" experience. ALAS.

    Me neither, not really. Two semesters at my first college, and that was before I was the kind of person who could appreciate it.

    By the time I got around to being the kind of person who could really make the most out of college, I was doing the whole non-traditional (for America) thing. I kinda feel like I missed out a little also...

    Just remember, campus police are a little smarter than you think so don't do anything really stupid. Have fun with college living. I miss it.

    I could never live in a dorm, luckily I live 15 minutes from the biggest research university in the area :D  So that is where I go. But good luck!

    Worked for me.

    Just don't fucking procrastinate, when at college level, it can become very taxing and you'll be pulling many all nighters

    It's manageable but for your own sanity, try to get work done as soon as you can. You'll free up more time for guilt-free fun then also

    Good luck with everything

    College was loads of fun compared to working full-time.

    It's going to be weird this fall not having to go back to school. Now I get to enjoy working full-time in a job that doesn't involve my degree that I spent 5 years earning whatsoever.


    Anyways, have fun. Dorm life is interesting. I had a lot of experiences that I wouldn't have normally had if I wasn't in a dorm for college.

    There's a time and a place for everything, and it's called college.

    Pity you won't be battered with hurricanes like I was back in 2004, when I went to college in Sarasota Florida. THAT was an experience. Hee hee hee hee. I once had to pull and all-nighter and then after class went to get some breakfast- only to have a representative of the college ask me;

    Him: what are you doing this weekend?
    Me: *sleep deprived stare* ... sleeping.
    Him: You do know you're being evacuated because of hurricane Ivan, correct? Do you have anywhere to go..? Are you parents coming to get you?
    Me: ...they're in Maryland.
    Him: Oh well, you'll go to this elementary school-
    Me: *calls friends in Tampa* SAVE ME PLZ D8..

    Which they did. And yeah Ivan hit the panhandle(sp) but still. :D  The other hurricanes did hit. FUN TIMES.

    Advise- meet people, make memories, go through the madness of it all.

    There is tons of space in your dorm room, if you look for it.

    The thing to do is to build a deck, you really don't need that much room above your bed, then you have that much floor space, for a couch, fridge, etc...
