    ^ really?? i heard from a lot of ppl that they miss high school..

    college is better in every single way.

    1. better social life
    2. more independent
    3. you are in control of your own education (study when you want, go to class when you want, select your classes when you want them)
    4. i also found college classes easier.

    hs has nothing on college.

    haha but i'm still living with my parents
    so in a way it's kinda like high school
    should i consider dorming my 2nd year?
    i decided not to dorm my 1st year
    cause i live pretty close 20 min away
    i'm afraid i won't make any friends :(

    consider dorming if you feel you want to be independent.

    it's a lot cheaper for housing after your first year.

    try to make friends through classes or clubs or something, but I won't lie, it's pretty hard to make friends as a commuter though I do know a few commuters that come to my hall at least every other day to study/hang out.

    soooooo shoefactory
    is dorming also guaranteed for 2nd years who didn't dorm freshmen year?
  • ShoeFactoryShoeFactory Registered User Posts: 643 Member
    well, second years don't 'dorm'

    they go apartments and on campus housing (apartment-like, unless you want to do AV, which is more dorm-like)

    No, it's not guaranteed.

    Freshwater, I am in the same exact position as you are. My parents let me decide, but they preferred that I stay home. Now they want me to dorm, but it is too late, so they told me to dorm either second quarter (not sure if that is even possible) or my second year. :(
