I'm at Boston University. I absolutely love it. Dorming was the best decision I've made. =] It's so much fun! And my classes are cool, but hard and time consuming.

I'm a student of Computer Science on our local Faculty of Economics and Tourism college. I really like it, especially because I get to live at home. I have classes almost every day, but only 3-4 hours a day.

Computer Sciences? Really? I work in the computer sciences department at my university (I'm just a work-study) and that sounds fun.

If i didn't like medicine better I SO would've been a computer science major. I'm such a nerd

So computer science is enjoyable? I know it depends on who you are, but I've always been intrigued and wanted to take a Computer Science class, but I'm afraid I won't be able to handle it.

Hey it seems like you guys are interested in Computer Science! Well I've always liked computers, so I liked to study something in that domain! I'm not a nerd though, I still got a lot to learn! But it's very interesting, especially the lab excercizes! I'm currently learning how to make different programs....it's fun!

I'm in my last year of college. I go to the University of Wyoming and I love it.

For those of you who have never lived in a dorm or never want to, just let me say that I had some of the best times living in a hall. I lived there for 3 years, 2 as an Resident Assistant and I loved being so close to so many friends. I would reccommend that every one live there at least one year.

I'm taking a computer science class right now, its ridculously easy. Of course its only a freshman level class, but its called understanding computers and we learn about microsoft office. I hope all you computer science people get to do more exciting things than me. ;)

I've always wanted to learn how to create programs and programming and the such. There's a whole group here that work developing and improving Linux. I think that's the Bee's knees. Hahahaha

Well, this is my second time to college lol. I went to the University of Southern Miss. I finished my freshman year though. I lived in the dorm and had the best time of my life. I also was in a sorority, Pi Beta Phi, and had an amazing time and a lot of amazing memories. Due to a family crisis I had to quit after my freshman year. Now after a year off I am returning to a community college here in Hattiesburg. I'm having to pay my own way this time so no USM again just yet. I go to class 3 days a week 7-12 and work the rest of the week. Even though it's not the same experience of USM (i pretty much lived my life there for a year...sleeping, eating, everything) it's still feels really great to be back in school. And by next year I should be back at my beloved USM!!

I'm back in college after 12 years of being just "mom." I love being an older student. I have so much more appreciation for what I'm learning. And I have much better study habits. It is hard to balance study, family, and find time for myself *coughplayonthelexcough* but it's getting better. I'm especially loving feeling young again. When I'm on campus, I feel like one of the kids, and I get along great. Although there are some moments when I feel so old, like when I realized one of my instructors is younger than I am. I'm studying Sociology, and just barely getting into it, but I love my classes, and lucked out getting the department chair as my Soc professor.

That's good that you're back in school!

My mom did something similar to that actually. She was in college when she got married and then i came along and had to drop out because I used to get sick all the time and me and my dad got chickenpox at the simultaneously. It happens. So, 8 years and 3 kids later she went back and finished school. She got her degree in accounting, while pregnant of my little sister. I didn't understand then, but now that i think about it, i'm very proud of my mommy for going back and finishing.

Now its my duty to finish college. I plan to go to graduate school so i'm a long ways away but if she could do it, then i surely can too.
