I'm planning on being a Dental Hygienist.

I'm a senior in college going for a Digital Media major for graphic design/animation/web design. In my first two years I did a Bachelor's of Art with 2D concentration but my teachers were full of so much BS and unreasonably high expectations I switched programs. Like, my teachers expected everyone to be Michealangelos or Monets.

Associate Science of Video Game Design.

Looking to go back to school for anything that is decent paying.

I graduated with a BS in Econ, will be going back for a Master's in Applied Econ and then a Financial Math/Engineering degree.

If you study Econ, learn the more applied subfields. If you're better at quantitative stuff, study econometrics/regression analysis, computer science/data mining/machine learning, applied math, etc. If you're not, get a Finance degree (which is basically financial economics) and go the corporate finance route; you'll learn plenty of Accounting which is practical.

I graduated with my bachelor's degree in 2008. I started off as a journalism major and then switched to English after two years. My emphasis was on professional and technical writing.

I enjoyed the freedoms that came along with college, but I was sick of revolving my life around my education after the first two years. The majority of my college life was spent looking forward to finally moving on to the next part of adulthood.

Ever think about getting a MS in Operations Research? You'd be able to get in with your math background and it would set you apart from the MD/MBAs if you wanted to do health administration.

I'm on my last semester for my B.A. in English with a Concentration in Creative Writing.
I love it. Writing is the only thing I want to do with my life.


Praying to get into an MFA Program this Fall.

Praying really really hard.

Will you pray with me?

I've thought about acquiring other degrees such as an MPH, but at this point, I just want to be done with school and start paying of my massive amount of student debt.

I'm studying computer science at the University of Crete. I'm currently in my 2nd year, I'm not sure what exactly I want to focus on yet, it's definitely not going to be hardware though.

I enjoy reading about what everyone is studying, the diversity here is interesting.

I'm doing a Master's in German at the moment (Intercultural German Studies, but whatever same diff). The program is offered between my home university back in Canada, and my university here in Germany. We spend a year at each school, and obtain both a Canadian degree and a German degree, so it's pretty cool. I'll only do a PhD immediately afterwards if I really don't know what to do with my life and feel like screwing around for another 4 years. Still not sure whether I'll do it back home or here, the German university system is a little weird and not really too much to my liking. We have it much better back home.

I did my BA in modern languages. It's kind of like a double major because you have to study two languages. I did French and German. I studied biology for my first two years, was never really the sciency type, lol. It sorted itself out, as what usually happens in life, thank goodness.

Graduated this month and lemme tell ya, it is so stale and such a drag being at home. Especially in my 'thug' town. College were my best years and I'm sad they're over.

Have you worked out your schedule yet?

Definitely take it easy the first semester. Don't overload yourself. Freshman year should be spent adjusting to college life.

Don't be afraid to change your major. I started off in Nuclear Engineering and ended up in Digital Media (Animation) with an Art minor.

If you end up being in a situation where you can't change your major, don't worry about it- you're not trapped in that particular field. I have a friend that got a bachelors and a masters in Music but eventually ended up working in visual effects and animation.

I have to finish this semester and then I graduate.

Classes I'm taking:
Technical Direction
Acting in Film
Digital Publishing
Portfolio

I can't believe I made it this far. It's been a tough road for me.

Also, to all you freshman. Good luck! Try to eat right and if you're in a dorm please don't try to keep a small animal there. Just don't.

Cool! Good luck with your last semester!

I'm now pretty much at half-point, I'm starting my 3rd year this semester, but I might take an extra semester to finish my studies. I still remember waiting for my exam results the summer before starting my studies, it's been a fun road so far and my last year was a good, or at least decent for my studies, and I got to make some new friends.

Question for you Americans - What is the difference between a college and a university? In Australia, the only tertiary options are uni and tafe.

In the US, the difference between a college and a university is pretty vague. A university is typical larger and offers higher degrees (masters, doctorates). A university will call their various departments "colleges" like I go to a university but I specifically am a part of the College of Business and Technology at that particular university. Colleges are smaller and usually only offer undergrad degrees in a particular department like art.

People use the terms interchangeably quite often.

I recommend signing up for amazon student with your college email if you use the website a lot. It will get you some savings. (Avoid buying from the university book store. It's always unnecessarily pricey.)

And apparently more likely to screw up your orders. Bookstore got the orders of everyone that took the same class as me, and they have yet to fix that, only fixing my problem partially(giving me 1 of the 3 books I need, thankfully the first one we use), and not even that for most people in my class.

Not the best start to college lol, but my classes at least are fine so far.

the website listed textbooks that i have recently learned from the professors that i do not need for the class, i would highly recommend waiting until the first day of class to buy textbooks, and to do it online or something, ****s expensive and i didnt need it

I recommend buying older editions since they're 95% the same. Much cheaper and you can use copies of the right edition from the library to scan homework pages and to make sure you're reading the right chapters.

Amazon Prime is a gift from heaven too. Only $50 for students and unlimited 2-day shipping for a year.

So here's a little story I feel like sharing with you while its fresh on my mind, mainly because I'm really confused by what just happened.

Around last thursday, I had an email about a meeting with my college planner about my future here and blah blah blah. I figured it was just for my schedule(we have to have a "4 year plan" about what classes we plan to take down the line so I assumed it was that), I scheduled it for Today(Mon, 9/28, about an hour prior to this post) and thought nothing really of it.

I go to where my meeting is, and it starts off with the usual "how are you enjoying this place, how are things etc", I said things were fine, at which point I get the response "Well thats interesting, because that's not what you said on the survey we sent out."

I had never heard of this survey prior to that meeting.

What happened next was a good half hour of "Why did you say ____ was a 3/10 here? What can we improve" "I've never taken this survey, I've never said that" before I was eventually allowed to leave.

They also said I partially filled out the survey and asked why I didn't complete it, which once again was answered with "I've never filled out this survey". At which point they finally let me leave.

The guy wasn't rude about any of the questions, and it was mostly a chill conversation(even if it doesn't come off of that as I wrote it), but that was still a really bizarre thing to happen. My guess is it was just a computer error, but IDK. As long as it doesn't effect anyone else, whatver.

^^^ My friend who is a professor has to fill out surveys like that. He always checks "very satisfied" or whatever because otherwise they call him in and ask "What did we do wrong???" "How can we improve???"

Congratulations, Kin! Any idea what you're gonna do next? Should apply for a Master's, since your GPA was great, you'll probably get lots of funding.

I had my last exam today, and just have a takehome paper left that I need to finish (really should have done it sooner). Also need to start working on my thesis, luckily I already have a topic picked out. :3
