    I'm still in highschool, but I imagine I would sit on my bed all day - the same stuff I'm doing right now and study.

    I have less than 40 years to cure aging and I don't even know if the majority of my friends can survive for that long.

    Not great.  I made a mistake in choosing a small college that wasn't any bigger than my high school.  It was like high school all over again.  Everyone knew your business.  The one positive was on the academic side of things.  I knew my professors well and had small classes.

    I liked living near a big university a lot better after college because of all the people and variety.  Not like high school at all.  I had a great time living in a large college town.  Be warned, those looking into what kind of college to attend.  If the college you attend is too small, it's like high school all over again.

    I absolutely hated college. I never thought it would be possible for me to hate something more than High School until I reached college. Not only was college the same as High School, but it was essentially a High School on steroids. Be weary of anyone who says "these are the best days of your life. . ."

    It was the best time of my life as there were no worries. Once you started working, then the worries come.

    It was in one word FUn and too much fuN. I would always remember my college for the enjoyment and joy I receive during this period. Some wonderful friends whom I'll never forget.

    Beyond incredible, I love learning! If I had the money and not so many student loans, I would be back in school now working on my PhD.

    grueling....I went to college late in life and graduated when I was 39. At the time I was working full time and raising my son...so I worked all day and went to school full time at night for 4 years and earned my bachelor's degree. it was hard work but I managed a 3.34 gpa, which I was very proud of. Was it worth it? absolutely.
