Now that we've had a bit to settle in and classes are in motion, I'm wondering how everyone is liking Tufts and college.

I'll say personally that college life feels a bit more ordinary than I thought it would, but I'm enjoying my classes quite a bit and am willing to qualify myself as "happy." How's everyone else doing?

im loving tufts. the people here are great, and my classes keep me busy, but are interesting. the deval patrick rally + dinner last night have been highlights of my experience here so far.

You are in intro to IR, and you are taking creative writing. Therefore, I am facebook friending you.

I'm actually DOING things, which is exciting. I'm not missing my home life as much as I thought I would, though I am missing some of my friends. I'm dealing surprisingly well. Today was a rough day, but overall, I'm good. It'll take a while before I have a deep, bonded friends group, but for now everyone is friendly, interesting, and fun to be with, so I really can't complain.

I do, however, wish I could figure out the waffle machine.

Screw the machine, I've found the batter is tres delicious for drinking.

I won't lie - I went through a short period of culture shock my first week here. It was a bit tough, but it's getting better. Even though they're not so obvious, I know there are people at Tufts who find the transition as awkward as I do, and that comforts me. Besides that, the classes are fun and not-as-tough as I expected, and I've gotten to meet some cool people. I did regret missing the last LJ lunch - I'd have liked to meet some of the people on this comm - hopefully there'll be another one, but as long as the comm keeps going it should materialize.

I've heard that people start really having fun when they get involved in whatever clubs or organizations there are, so I'm looking to do that. Hopefully I'll be able to get the debate team going or get my writing published in one periodical or another, the source maybe? j/k

Life is good! Campus is nice, food is good (minus boringness), people are interesting, there are tons to do. I almost don't know where to start.

My classes are... eh, not the greatest. But thats mainly on account of boring engineering classes and my HORRIBLE english class (that I am now transfered out of). I am very much finding myself to be the stupidest student in many of my classes, and its damn intimidating. And the party scene is lacking.

But everyone is so friendly and involved and amazing and genuinely wants to help, and that just makes everything great.
