Well, it's official, our dear old Igor is going to college tomorrow. That's right, tomorrow, the Saturday :). Now I was there for orientation earlier in the summer but now I'm finally going to college...

 

and then I need to take two tests, one for CS and one for Japanese..argh! But it'll be worth it and I'll be in classes full of sophmores (CS) :-D. Anyways, just thought you all should know, maybe this will end up in a thread with people's "first day" experiences.

 

By the way, I'm going to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (comp. sci /engineering major). Also, can anyone recommend a really cheap textbook website with high quality books? I'm thinking Amazon used books, but cheaper without losing the quality?

The University books store might have some good deals when you get there. I know that I was able to get used books that other students had sold back to the books store my first year.

 

Amazon usually has good deals, just make sure the text you buy is the same edition as your prof. is using. There's nothing worse than getting to class only to find you're missing a chapter from your edition. :lol:

 

Best of luck JI, the first year is always interesting.

Good luck JI, I'm in my second year of Uni and most of the time it's a breeze - until I remember about the project due in the next day and stay up all night doing it :roll:

 

As for text books . . . I only used them first semester, since then lecture notes all the way. Cheap and they tell you pretty much all you need (unless you've got a really lazy lecturer).

But if you want textbooks, second hand is the only way to go when a book costs around $100 per subject . . . bloody rediculous.

So I guess Amazon might work (never used it myself), other wise there should be some second hand bookshop around that sells the text books. Around my Uni there's a few as well as one run by the uni itself.

College, ooh, this is fun. Assuming that your a religious family and you do prayers or something, begin grace with something like "Thank you, lord, for children that grow up too fast, who, it seems like only yesterday were just a newborn infant, looking at the world through the first time with bright and curious eyes..." you can move your parents to tears with that stuff! It's great- I'm doing it as my sister leaves for the Pacific coast and Stanford. :D

Jedigor, since I'm so small you can smuggle me into your suitcase and use me to ace all of your tests, I can like be inside the suitcase looking at your notes with a penlight and whispering the answers to you, IT'S FOOLPROOF!

Unless someone says "Hey, where did you get a talking suitcase that whispers answers to you?" Then again, I suppose you could just say that their scyzoophrenic and are hearing voices from suitcases. :D

I think I saw one of them there talking suitcases in "stuff you never knew existed" magazine or Brookstone (the store what sells needless, amazing, expensive crap).

Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the Dark Side!
