2) What was your most remarkable thing/incident that happened during your college life?
3) What the precious things you learnt in your college life.
I spent a total of 7 years at uni. For the first 4, it was all work and little social life. I was, after all, there to succeed. The start of the 5th year changed all that. I met my guy. He was too good to allow him to slip through my fingers. Luckily, we were researching similar topics, so were able to bounce ideas off each other. We both finished with the qualifications we wanted.
To be more specific in answering your questions, I have more social life now than in all those 7 years. The most remarkable event was meeting my guy, even though I was not looking. The thing that I already knew, but uni life confirmed, was never stop learning.
Thank you for MHG!
It was mostly a horror show. I struggled to get through it both academically and financially. I had to drop out twice because I ran out of money. It took me ten years to finally graduate. I am glad I stuck it out. I had a good career in IT.
I went to a tech school, learned just about everything thing there was to know about trucks, driving & repairing them.
A skill I have used at many times of my life, as well as on the fire department to this day.
Had a lot of fun.
College sucked for me. Some of the darkest times of my life. I was blackout drunk most of the time. Lost my virginity. Damn near lost my sanity. I would not do it again.
It was right after the Spanish-American War and riding a horse to class every day was fun!
@exitseven I'm always looking for a laugh!
Personally, college wasn't for me. I loved the parties and random hookups, but my social anxiety has gotten the best of me ever since and I just couldn't take the stress of school anymore.
Better than I expected. I’m fitting in much better than I did in highschool. And I’m doing things I never thought possible or saw myself doing.
That being said, it is just my first year and the work will only get more challenging
It was great! I had a really good time and got to go to England.
I’m not academic so I didn’t enjoy it. My nightmares are that I have to go back to college for some reason…
@exitseven yeah strange how it’s always “finals day” and I have studied or been to class once in the dream. Or one time I lost my car in the school parking lot. Lol. I’m getting old.
I'm not old enough to be in college dude xD
Freshman year was amazing, the rest sucked ass.

They say you can choose two of the following:
- Good grades
- Enough sleep
- Social life
I chose grades and sleep. I made 2 friends in college. I graduated magna cum laude, and had a very consistent homework/gym/sleep schedule.
I thrive on consistency and schedules so I absolutely loved it. It was a great time, but it's not what would traditionally be considered a great college experience lol
