[quote]How did your first year go?[/quote]
I just happened to finish my first year of college and it went great! I made quite a lot of friends (mostly from class) and had a damn good fun time! I'm not the typical student though, I'm a complete over-achiever and was glad to have a roommate that would carry me out to parties/clubs to relax and get drunk (few times, heh).
I did 16 credit hours for Fall and 19 for spring... I think the most I liked out of my first year were the clubs that I joined. I found that the honor societies were a bit lacking in organizing meetings.. as opposed to the pre-health clubs that were completely awesome! (i'm pre-med, so this is the crowd of people I was stuck with). Out of my first year, I liked research... research... and research!
I am still doing research with the post-grad student (in social psychology) that taught my class. I run experiments, play with data, and have some fun.
Just try different things!
I think it was worth it. I only regret not going out every weekend. I like being busy and tired from the work I did everyday. But I have to say though, join a sport when you go to college. I'm doing rowing this fall and I'm psyched for all the fun I'm in for.
