    The SUNY system is great and I've had friends from a few of them and my nephew plans to go to SUNY Buffalo next year.

    Enjoy it and learn something and be willing to go wherever it takes you. My list of majors (spread over the 27 years since I graduated from high school) is nuclear engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, geological engineering (BS 1984), geology, agricultural engineering, geography (MS 2006), and I'm applying for a MPH (public health) program in the winter. When I started college, there's no way I'd have believed I'd end up with degrees in geological engineering & urban geography and be looking at public health.

    Well guys its nice to talk to you all, it really comforts me and takes the chill off the inital collegiate shock here! I switched rooms because I was stuck with a wierdo who was 21 and thought I was going to put up with his going to the bar every night and trying to hid beer in my fridge, which is not allowed. SO I got sick of that and called campus police, they took care of it and now I'm in a 100% better and bigger room with a real nice roomate, he likes his rap music but I'll tolerate that much more than someone drinking all the time! College isn't about partying all the time, its about bettering yourself and then partying! lol But seriously it really isn't that bad here, I'm starting to like it, now i just need to get to know some people, but I think that will really come into play once classes start.

    TTYL!

    you didn't have to narc on him... i hope my roommate is 21!

    your right though, it's not about partying, partying is GREAT, but if you let it interfere with your education your screwed. you gotta find the balance between studying and partying.

    have you met any of your HS friends yet?

    Why not? He obviously didn't care what Nep-G wanted or liked and already considerd Nep-G's stuff fair game or he wouldn't have used his fridge without permission for storing contraband booze. If the campus police had got there before Nep-G called them, the guy would have easily finger Nep-G as the guilty party, as the fridge was Nep-G's, and gotten off scott free. The guy was trouble from the get-go and situation would have gone down hill fast from there. He nipped it in the bud.

    And to add to Scot, I went to SUNY at Plattsburgh. Stayed in the dorms all 4 years. Felt like I grew up 6 years in the 4 that I was there. There were some less than wonderful moments (like being tossed in a triple my first semester), but for the most part it was a positive experience. Glad you've found more than a suitable place to entrust your plants!

    I hope they aren't requiring you to find another roommate or pay more for the room. I was faced with that prospect when my 3 semester roommate just didn't show up for the 4th semester. So I had to go out find another roommate.

    My first semester was a total social nightmare. The one roommate was an alcoholic. The other smoked, drank, and was a burnout. He was growing certain non-carnivorous plants on the window sill! I was totally straight and didn't fit in at all. I fled that room after the first semester.
