I find it hard why college do this and yet the raise the prices even more. I guess they want your money more than you becoming successful. Anyway I share my knowledge for free after I finish. I hate supporting these overpriced universities.


I hear ya man. Good thing I'll have taken 11 AP classes before I get to college. Hopefully that will shave a good amount off my tuition.

Playing video games in college is for losers.

This (kind of)

I was forced to go without video games and tv for my first year of college (not through choice) and it was the best thing that ever happened to me. There is absolutely no reason to take a pc to college (there are plenty there already). All they do is act as a distraction when you should be busy coming out of your shell.

it's college not high school. There are no nannies in college, you have to look after yourself.
Besides, college is still a business. Just like hospitals are businesses also. Grad school is another story though. My little sister goes to Columbia graduate school and they take care of her really nicely; especially with the money she's paying per semester/year.

I don't get people who say not to play video games in college because somehow it'll make you more outgoing or something. Moderate gaming is a great way to make friends, especially if you like whatever the "big" game is at the time (in this case, Halo or CoD or the like).

Anyway, the best advice I can give about desktops in college is to leave it home at first. By Thanksgiving, you'll most definitely have a better feel for your workload and space constraints and will be able to better decide if you'd be able to make use of your desktop.
