    Beat decision. My community college had classes as good as my university at a fraction of the cost.

    Community college is described as a bad options because it's essentially the same education but a fifth of the price. Like, the same professors that teach the core classes at FSU teach at TCC, for example. I'm at UCF right now taking classes online towards my English degree.

    I see there’s a variety of majors then, that’s pretty cool. I’m a double in finance and economics.

    Jumping back into college after a 9 month break the right way by taking a condensed matter physics class. I'm a bit worried I'll be a bit stale but I'm also pretty stoked for that class cuz it'll be really interesting.

    Goddamn, man child Prestigious

    I guess I technically double majored in sociology and social sciences and have a minor in women's studies. Batting 1000 for the "useless majors" lol but I have a decent job so it's cool.

    I've been taking college classes for work while working full time as well. I have a related degree to my field but they wanted me to get some credits that were related more closely. It's not hard academically but the classes are not as interesting as what I went to school for and I'm tired after working so it sucks. This is actually the first term I'm not taking classes. They extended my deadline to do them so that's nice.

    Going back to school tomorrow at 26. Been contemplating it the last couple years but was kinda nervous about being "too old." But I figured if I'm doing something to move forward in life then it doesn't matter how old I am.

    if you're in your 20's i wouldnt worry about being too old for college. honestly, i dont think anyone should worry at any age. ive had many classes with people who you would perceive as "too old" but no one, at least in my experience, treats them any differently. maybe its just the school i go to where its kind of a normal thing for older people to take classes.

    i mean business Prestigious

    So this happened in on of my classes the other day..

    Student: I didn't do the homework
    Professor: Well, why not?
    Student: I didn't buy the text book
    Professor: You have to buy the text book
    Student: Fuck that shit

    My professor didn't respond and just looked baffled. Was quite the moment
