You WILL experience a few of these things.
Since I started college a lot has changed. I went from doing all my class readings in advance to cramming them in right before the final. I went from playing it safe with a cranberry vodka on the weekends to a nice scotch at the end of a particularly trying weeknight.
In college, our majors are our labels. And because your major says a lot about you, I’ve decided to put my own major (journalism) to work and tell you which majors you have to date before you graduate.
• Choose the major that will get you to your dream job • 3 fun and unexpected Halloween costumes • Just a typical college ACB thread • Tailgating on the cheap • Do's and don't of bringing a laptop to class • Unusual careers for college grads • 4 habits you should adopt in college
Most college students struggle to complete one degree in four years, often taking an extra football season to finish or going on the five-year plan. Well, imagine trying to get two degrees in four years. And being in a sorority. And working. And having a boyfriend. And trying to maintain social skills. And watching Glee every Tuesday.

Living in the dorms is one of the most essential college experiences. Years from now, you’ll tell your friends and family of all your adventures and mishaps.

Sigh.), I asked the CollegeCandy writers to share their do-over wish lists so no one else has to make the same mistakes we did.
Everyone has learning experiences freshman year of college. We learn to stay away from the Jungle Juice if we want to keep our heads out of toilets and trash cans, we learn that skipping class can only lead to slipping GPAs, and most importantly, we hope to learn what we want to do with our lives. Some of us go into college with our careers already laid out, and every step of the way planned.
I hate to break it to you, but if you're planning on sacrificing your summer for an internship this year, now is the time to start searching, applying, and interviewing.
You can always tell who in your class is a Drama major. Don’t get me wrong, I’m just as much...

I thought, like most people, that I did well freshman year. I made it through, I managed to get decent...
