I miss alot of things. i miss hanging out with my classmates during our free time in the study hall. we were supposed to lower our voices in that room but at times, we talk so loud that other people get disburbed. lol! we also bring toys like playing cards and uno stacko and we play there. sometimes, we take a nap in the mezzanine. i also miss my classmates. our guy classmates are so fun to be with. they are very jolly even inside our classrooms. i miss my college bestfriend. we used to do our homeworks and projects together. well, i don't miss those numerous assignments. that's for sure! lol!

I miss pretty much everything about my college days. It was the best time of my life up until then. And life has only gotten better because of all that I experienced at college. I miss friends, I even miss studying (yeah, I'm weird), I miss intramurals, I miss the activities I took part in, I miss some of my idealism from those days. I really could go on and on.......

I miss college for so many different reasons. A lot of my good friends that I still have today are those whom I have met in college. I miss doing homeworks and projects which ended up in a house party. Also the restless hours of listening to professors to get a good mark. Really college days fly so fast that you end up missing it.

I miss college too! I enjoyed my college days and the friends I made then. I still get n touch with them every once in a while. I miss the UST library, haha! I miss sneaking out of the dorm with my roommates at night and bribing the guard to let us in when it's past curfew time. I miss going to the mall to watch a movie in between classes. I miss group studies and hanging out at a friend's place. I basically miss my first shot at independence.

really? that's exciting! staying in a dorm is one thing i wanted to do when i was in college but i thought my parents won't allow me.

Well, since I am from a far away place I didn't have a choice. I was anxious to live in a dorm at first because I know it will take a long time for me to get used to it. I've always enjoyed the comforts of home and staying in a room with strangers was one thing I almost dreaded. But then it turned out to be fun and my dorm mates became very good friends of mine so I could not be happier.

I miss nothing. I am glad to be out in the real world making real mistakes and making a fool of myself. Everything is going wrong for me.

are you sure that you miss nothing? why are you quite negative about yourself? don't think that everything is going the wrong way. enjoy life! :)

Hi there maroseqf. I am still in college, but i can already tell you what i know i will miss: - all the free time that i have now as well as the long holidays (which always seem to short even now) - the few friends i have gathered here at my university - having nothing to do for days, and not having to work day to day - having various discounts for being a student.

College life was the best part of my life.... No tension just fun that was always on the mind.... Rooming here n dere with friends, chatting for long hrs, going for trips it was just so much fun.... I really cherish that time and a sort of nostalgia creeps in when i think back about that wonderful time....

When we're in college, we will never appreciate several precious moment until we left it. For me who're already working and left the college for about 3 years now, this topic brought some memories back. I miss: - Playing futsal with my friends everyday - Doing own LAN connection that connect several houses to play Warcraft network games - Takes turn to go into the bathroom - going to class with a high spirit because the lecturer is woman ; ) - Enjoy the beautiful scenery with friends (because my college is near the seaside) But, what I hate about college : - When lecturer like to ask question in the class and randomly picked the student to asnwer it spontaneously - A lot of assignment that sometimes need us to travel from house to house to find the answer (of course to copy and paste ) ; )

What I miss the most is learning new things everyday. At work I do the same things over and over again. I don't feel that I'm really suited for a work that is really repetitive that's why I want to stay in an environment where learning and fun is.

Being free from debts and all these bills!!! LOL Drinking sessions 'til dawn and being able to not sleep for 4 days and still feel ok! (but I guess that can be attributed more to age! LOL)

I really miss being able to hang out with different groups. Now everyone has work so it's hard to plan get-togethers. In college I could just go to the library or cafeteria and I'm sure to bump into someone I know. I just miss seing people I know and like.

well, i am still in college so i cannot answer this very well. but i do know what i am going to miss. i am going to miss the classrooms, the friends, the homework (that other people always wanted to copy from me, and some never did and they were thrown out of the classrooms), hanging out with friends any time you feel like (just bunk a class or two and go have some snacks at the corner shop), the little get-togethers (where we get to meet our friends in the other batches, for e.g. the picnic, the annual talent show, etc.), the weekends (with the extra lectures and some mini exams), the fun in the class, the stupid boys who made too much noise and never did any work, the snide comments of the class cynic... and so many other things... happy myLotting

College days? I think I miss my friends more than anything else, and also my housemates, and the countless hours I've spent on online gaming. :D One thing I definitely will not miss is the exam !! and the project assignment !!

I have mentioned here in mylot before our hang out moments in the fields. I beleive this is the most heart warming memory of my college days. All of us passing the time, sitting on the ground, talking about lifes best treat for each of us, sharing wonderful stories, and more. I remember that we have a long break and we used to stay until late in the afternoon as twilight begins shifting the mood form active day to romantic evening with the cool breeze brushing our hair fine. The stars starting to appear one by one and so unexpectedly the bell rung and we need to proceed to our room. To give you a background, there are two couples in our group so better not confused by the romantic shift.
