    College Rocks

    Well, at least at Gettysburg. Before classes start. Everything from sexual assult lectures to comedians have been fun and entertaining. The college doesn't try to prevent anything, they just say do stuff responsibly. Fewer stupid people makes life easier. I have friends at different colleges who already dislike it and are also in orientation.

    As a side note, axiel and I met. We'll work on getting a picture up.

    Oh....ummm...I'm gonna fade back into the shadows now. Until later, lasses and gents.

    At the sexual assault lecture at my orientation 3 years ago, they speaker made a comment that she didn't think there would be a problem with my class. My entire class was all guys (engineering group).

    Yes, college does rock... I've been here (McGill) less than a day and I already never want to leave. My roommate is awesome and meeting people is so, so, so easy.

    Wheee. Also, I am slightly drunk. For the first (legal) time.

    College does indeed rock! Finally I can get back to being surrounded by hot girls in shorts five times a day. Of course it also helps my morale a bit that our football team is fresh off a national title and is expected to be a top 5 team again this year. Oh man, I can't freaking wait for September 9th. It might be one of the funnest nights of my life.

    Of course, what also makes the beginning of the college year fun is financial aid. Gotta love those two days of the year when $3500 is magically dropped into your bank account (never mind how much of that I'll have to pay back). Video ipod here I come!

    Never heard of a sexual assault class though in the last months of highschool we had a class called "Sex and Relationship"

    I didnt find out about that class til the last minute though. I was out working on a sonstruction site with another student named HÃ¥kan and I got a call from my painting teacher that told me "On tuesday you are going too have sex and relationship with HÃ¥kan and the others in the class so be here at 9 that day"

    Which freaked me out for a few seconds til he explained it was a class.

    Hey Piff, you might want to watch out once school starts. Gettysburg (and other colleges like it) might talk a big game about doing things responsibly, but their campus police comes down hard on underage drinking, especially during the first couple weeks. I'm not sure if that's your cup of tea (or beer as it may be), but you obviously don't want to get in trouble.

    And being an undergrad is fun. You know what it's like being a grad student on a campus full of people that are about four years younger than you?

    Creepy.

    I hate you so much. We started on the 21st, which barely gave me enough time to recover from taking summer classes.

    Are you on semesters or quarters? If you're on quarters then that makes a bit more sense. Otherwise you must've either gotten out real late or should thank the heavens for letting you have such a long break.

    Of course. That's why I'm not drinking the first few weeks. A nice chunk of the building across the way all got write ups on the second or third day.

    Empired, legally? Aren't you the same age as me?

    One more year and I'm free. If I get into the college I want(they've been calling twice a week. . .) then it should be pretty kick ***.

    Good luck piff and stop by more often.

    Imagine 20 years younger :grin: .

    Some of you may remember Mr. Lang, he attends the same school and I told him I would buy him lunch sometime. That will be the second person from the OTF I have met.

    Two more days and I am back on campus. Fairly nervous since I have to get a 3.5 GPA while attaining my masters to qualify for the phd program so I have to be on my A game (literally I suppose) the entire time.
