I just finished my first year at the college and was very happy with my experience. There are a lot of rumors going around saying that all the students here do is study. Granted, a lot of students are studying at any given time (not so much weekend nights though). I, however, found that I had more work in high school. I only had about an hour of work a day for the classes I was taking. I chose classes that appealed to me, ones that I knew I was interested in and would readily understand and pick up on the concepts. Since I understood the material, the work came quickly and easily. I'm also a realatively fast worker, so that probably contributed to my smaller workload.

My advice to you is to pick classes that you like, ones that you will not mind doing work for (If you don't yet know what you're interested in, picks a variety of ones that appeal to you for whatever reason you're freshman year. That way, you can discover what you like the most.). If you're taking classes you are interested in, you won't even notice that the amount of work involved. Also, I suggest summer jobs in your respective field of study. I plan on going into the business school and over the summer I interned at a business. Suddenly, a light went on in my head, as I realize that the concepts I learn in school are actually used out in the real world, and can be applied to many things.

Bottom line: There's a good course selection here. Choose classes you'll enjoy. There are GERs (general education requirements), but you're bound to find something you're interested in to fill those.
