Will my undergraduate years different greatly from my under-undergraduate years?
Do the experiences of Justin Long and Drake Bell in various motion pictures speak to the experience? Or the show Greek? Or Undeclared?
Will I have to write 600 page term papers?
Will falling in love be a thing of passion, mystery and intrigue?
Have things been somewhat exaggerated?

Yes
No
Probably not
Hell no
Answer hazy, ask again later
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Haha, falling in love a thing of intrigue. More like a drunk first timer and re-meet later.

Been going to a community college since I was 15. I don't know what those big universities are like but this school was pretty much just like high school, but more is up to you. For example, if you don't come to class no-one is going to call the school police on you, you'll just miss everything taught that day, which is usually a lot, especially if you have a 2- or 3-day-a-week schedule. It is a little more laid back, especially the advanced classes. Sometimes there's no homework at all, sometimes there's homework every day, depends on the teacher. I haven't had to write any essays more than 4 pages long, but then again I haven't taken an English class yet.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Community college isn't really a big change from high school (I've been to community colleges, universities, and everything in between); only the academics are harder... maybe. The shock with a larger school stems from living on campus.

My brother can attest to that one.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I love my college. I do now, at least, just as I'm about to finish my first diploma (I'll have two diplomas before the age of 20! Woo!), but, at first, it was heart-wrenching because I didn't fit in with anyone.

Now, I'm still kind of a social outcast but more by choice than anything. I can fit in if I choose to and that's what matters.

Oh, I'm also learning cool stuff!

Sorry to revive this all the way from the 3rd page of Everything Else, but I finished my first year at my university and I wanted to thank you guys for your advice and support. It went really well! (Grades/Clubs/Friends/Etc...) Expect a post in 3 or 4 years asking what Grad school will be like... ;)
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.
