So, is Libreoffice the way to go for a free MS Office alternative?

I pretty much just need word.

After reading on of my first assignments, I just realized that I didn't install Office when I was at my house, and I don't have the disk/key with me (I have a copy of Office 03 at home that I used on my old laptop/HDD). I could "torrent" the disks and have someone at home email me the CD key, but I don't think that that would go over well with the school.

So, what should I use instead?

Either that or Open Office will work just fine for writing papers.

see if your school gives you MSDNAA access, you could get a copy of office for cheap or free. Otherwise, I use openoffice, and it's comparable to office

You can use Microsoft Office Web Apps if your computer is always online.
Google Docs, too. I just prefer the former to guarantee compatibility with actual Office apps.
Other than that, yes, LibreOffice is the most common alternative to MS Office. There are a few more. For Word in particular, there's Abiword but I've never used it.
