I'm just wondering what percentage of college/uni people are on this site! It's a question that I keep asking as I'm currently in it myself. I know weird.

#3 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2011 posts) -

In a state university for undergrad computer engineering. Not taking classes this summer because I'll be taking military training since I'm under scholarship but I'm on track to graduate on time, either way.

Got my Associates degree in Liberal Arts (aka nothing) last semester. Transferring to a four year school in the fall for Creative Writing.

*Associates from community college. Damn you, mobile site.

"Uni"? I don't think I've ever seen anything call a university "uni". Is that a British thing?

And in the fall I will be going for my fourth and (hopefully) final year at a university.

I'm 22 and didn't go to university, and I probably never will.

I am in my fourth and final year doing an undergraduate honours anthropology at University of Victoria. I plan on going through to get a Master's degree and possibly higher.

I went to the University at Buffalo for one semester back in the fall. It didn't click with me and I hated it so I dropped out and I'm starting at a technical school in September.

I will be starting my fourth year in August. I'll probably need to take an extra semester, but that won't be the end of the world so I should be alright.

#12 Posted by Warihay (480 posts) -

Getting ready to start my junior year at college in August. Couldn't be more excited to go back.

#13 Posted by MyNiceIceLife (613 posts) -

tried a couple of the state colleges but dropped out of one of them (3 all together if you count only going a day or so for the other two). Currently in a Technical College and will graduate in December with a degree in Web Development and Design.

I actually just started up again recently. College has really been an on and off thing for me for a long time. Figured it was about time to just buckle down and finish my bachelors. Studying computer info systems (aka IT shit).

#15 Posted by JonathanAshleyMoore (281 posts) -

Second year of University.

#16 Posted by Gilsham (293 posts) -

3 years on from my Bachelors in Computing and Mathematical Sciences and I'm still only making websites =P

Exactly what I'm doing minus the military.

I'm in my second year of a master's program. I was going to go for a PhD but then I got really tired of grad school.

It's at the very least a shorthand name us Australians use.

#20 Posted by fishmicmuffin (1041 posts) -

I just graduated. Still not sure how I feel about it.

#21 Posted by WMWA (1160 posts) -

Yep. Starting law school this Fall. Actually really nervous about it, to be honest

My alma mater! I got my useless Bachelors of English Literature there back in '03. I regret nothing!

Canadians use that term a lot too. (a Commonwealth thing?)

It sounds like they use it everywhere but America. Unless Americans do use it and I've just never heard it, but I'm going to stick with it being a primarily non-American thing.

I'm going this fall!

@MooseyMcMan: I'm American and I've typed out the shorthand before, but I've never used it in any type of conversation.

#31 Posted by MightyDuck (1511 posts) -

Yep graduated back in 2009. Working on a Masters little by little.

Clearly this is a sign that Obamacare has turned us all into European socialists.

I'm joking, people! I'm joking!

Finished my undergrad a few years ago. Currently in my last year of law school, got my articling all lined up (work placement after law school). Things are looking bright!

@wmaustin55: Hahaha- what a coincidence!

#35 Posted by Niall_Sg1 (362 posts) -

Yeah going into my third year of uni, just enjoying the summer atm. Lots of games to catch up on!

#36 Posted by Bigheart711 (1253 posts) -

I'm currently in college. I'm working on a Bachelor's Degree for Graphic Design right now. Someday, I'll have to elevate it to a Master's Degree because that was what I originally planned.

Kinda? I'm going into my third semester in Cegep (which is basically grades 12-13) in Quebec. Currently doing my best at failing calculus II and on the brink of disaster in mechanics in summer school. The pain will end in exactly a week.

Though thinking about it, even if we call it "college" here, it's not quite what America refers to it because we also have university here but it's three years for an undergrad degree, not four.

#38 Posted by triviaman09 (787 posts) -

Going into my senior year of college for a BA in Neuroscience.

#39 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

#40 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3050 posts) -

Definitely. Education is one of the most important things a person can pursue.

#41 Posted by CrossTheAtlantic (1145 posts) -

I just finished my undergrad in architecture at Pratt Institute in May, actually. Might do grad school at some point in the future, but for now, I'm just working.

#42 Posted by Chop (1995 posts) -

Nope. Guess I'm a stupid failure or something.

#43 Posted by LiquidPrince (15857 posts) -

Fourth year.

I've heard, although I'm not sure if it's true and I'm sure you can clarify, that Americans tend to use "college" as a catch all phrase for all post-secondary institutions, whereas here in Canada, and I suspect also throughout parts of Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, we use the word "college" to exclusively refer to community colleges. Perhaps, the slang "uni" comes out of the increased need to use the word "university" conversationally, as opposed to "college".

3rd yeah here, studying abroad this year as well.

#48 Posted by TheFakePsychic (189 posts) -

Going into freshman year Digital Media - Interaction late August.

Super nervous, since I'm (98%) sure I'm going to be so much younger than pretty much everyone there.

#49 Posted by Owlright (117 posts) -

Yup, finally rekindling my secondary education this fall as an archaeology major, having dropped out of college pursuing a religious studies major a few years ago. Hoping to one day make it to grad school and focus on mortuary archaeology. Of course, the school I'm attending did decide to pull a shit ton of funding to the department right after I enrolled, so that's...fun :|

#50 Posted by coaxmetal (1582 posts) -

Damn looks like we an ed joo cated crowd. I graduated in May. Had a full time job programming for over a year though. Hoping to get a better one up in the Bay and move there.
