I able to get all sorts of different things, mostly Office related stuff, and Win7 & 8. Are they only usable while in school and once you're done they disappear? Im really wanting to ditch win8 and go back to 7.

I assume you're talking about Microsoft Dreamspark?
You can keep the software you get through Dreamspark after you're no longer a student.
Read and you'll know all about it.

Windows 8 is fine, except for that stupid charm bar. If you look around at all beyond just the UI, it has a lot of pretty big improvements.

I downloaded Win 8 when I was in school and didn't use it until half a year after I graduated and had no issues at all activating it.

Make sure you download all the programs before the session in your University ends.

I actually kept forgetting to get my free programs and Windows 7 / 8
After the school year was over. BAM. No longer able to access the page.
