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?

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.
