I plan on majoring Electronic Producion & Design and Music Business Management. If any of you know other colleges that have strong music departments in these areas, please let me know.

The college I go to has music management, but not electronic production per se. I am a sound engineering arts major (which is part of the music program). As a music student myself, I would say do not go to Berklee unless they give you a TON of scholarship money. It's incredibly expensive to go there (close to $56k a year) and they cut about half of the freshman class after the first year. Not to say it's a bad school, it's the number one school for music, but unless they give you a lot of money, you're better off elsewhere.

yeah man,, idk maybe its just the angle, my room in first year was a bed, a desk, and a door pretty much. No floorspace except along the side of the bed and round the corner slightly.

I'm wondering this, too. Statistics from a college says that the frat boys and girls are the minority, but everyone I've encountered is in one!

I didn't my first year. I still haven't, and while I haven't completely decided to avoid fraternities, I'm not actively looking to get involved in one. Things might change, but that's for the future, as far as I'm concerned.

Jealous of optics?

I hated my first year course. Didn't understand shit. Scored like 14% in the final exam, but thankfully nothing in the first year counts towards my overall grade, so it doesn't harm me.

That's probably the module I'm least looking forward to.

I just started college this week. I've gotta say, it's pretty awesome. Plus, the student life commitee has people here that do things like give out free cotton candy and have those games like they have at the fair. Plus, the classes are great.

I did. At my school fraternities are huuuuge. Literally about 60-70% of guys are in one I'd say, and I can see why. I play soccer for my school and so I don't party every night like some of the kids. But frats are a lot more than that (at least at my school). Sure there are partiers who just get belligerently drunk all the time, but there are also kids who are academically focused, play on sports teams and all that. I love my frat

Yesterday, my school put on something called MEGA Fair. It was pretty much all of the student organizations getting out in booths and showing off their stuff. I signed up to be on the mailing list for a lot of the clubs, from the skydiving club to the improv group. It's pretty exciting.

The orientation leaders where I went pushed us to join one quit a few times.

Greek is big at some schools, hardly existent at others. OSU is the latter. I wouldn't say it's good or bad either way, but if most other people are in a frat or sorority then finding one you like will make your social life a lot easier. Talking to a student who transfered from a school where greek life was big, not being in a frat says you are weird, mainly because everyone just assumed no frat would take you.

Full week into college, and Mediated Communications class is already looking okay. I get to make stuff with Photoshop to start off, so maybe I can get into all these photoshop threads hanging round NG once in a while.

But other than that, I'm getting swamped with required-to-get-outside-of-class items, such as a portable firewire hard drive.

Oh cool! Are you actually going to stock it with fish and take care of them while you're there at school? I know that my college said that fish were the only pets you were allowed to brings, but I haven't seen anyone I know bring them and put them into their room. I don't even know if they'd be worth the hassle based on the idea that college is all about having a pretty irregular schedule.

Also, I did some exploring around campus the other day and found some neat places. One of the places is called the Formal Gardens and it's where the first president of Miami University is buried. It was pretty neat. I'm loving how nice everything around here looks.

Currently waiting for my first load of laundry ever to be completed. This is truly the most exciting part of my college experience. I can't wait to get my warm and clean clothes back.

Fuck, that reminds me of my first year. I had so much shit, car was packed so full my dad couldn't come down to see the uni because there was no space for him.

You'll probably find you don't need most of it, I definitely did. I now have two big plastic bags, one with bedding, one with clothes, one cardboard box of kitchen shit, a backpack with all my electronics, and a carrier bag of textbooks.

I had a TV, a desktop PC, games consoles, a big box of DVDs and games, another of books, and loads of other stuff, and they were all a total waste of space.

I went dorm shopping and spent over two hundred dollars on things, lol.

To be fair, women and men view decorating a room differently. You'd probably like it to look a nice place, while I wouldn't care if it just had a TV and N64 in it with a bin of clothes. Ha, it's a gender thing.

Also, I found this in the residence hall. It made me laugh.

I suppose. My desk is my favorite part of my room.

I would say that my desk is probably my favorite part of the room. Unless I'm tired. When that happens, my bed is usually my favorite. I'm fickle like that.

That's just awesome right there :D.

Well, I start my second year of college on Tuesday. Only difference, I've switched courses from taking Computer Programming to Computer System Technology!! Focuses on basically the networking and security side. In a nut shell, the overview says this course is a "hand-on" course, so it's basically one HUGE 3 year lab :P Pretty awesome :) I'll post the schedule once I get the final info on my schedule. Can't WAIT to start on Tuesday!!! :D :D :D

It's so awesome to have a college desk that you personalized. I'm so damn excited that I've got basically everything set up. All I have to do is work with the speakers I bought and see if I can get them to work. Other than that, it's all pretty much perfect.
