Im going to major in Adventure Rec. also at CMC temberline. I really dont want to start summer for 2 reasons (sp) 1. I just off school and need a brake and 2.starting next summer I have a job waiting on me. besides I cant say the winters here in michigan are any good to do any thing in. I have herd their is some decent bouldering around leadvilly where the campus is and as long as the winds no one me I'll drink and boulder the winter away.

Thanks and BTT

I say start fall term, then go to hardcore student mode. Take all the credits you can, every term you can. Get the education out of the way, then live your life. I still climb at my local gym and on some rock on the weekends taking 19+ credits (summer term too). I should be done with my MBA with a couple of minors in 5 years (maybe less if i really push it)

The way I look at it, right now as a full time student, I can't make enough money to support what I wanna do (climb and paintball). If I get done with school I can enter the job market and support the addictions. If I get done with school sooner, I can start the addictions sooner, ya dig?

I deffinatly recomend fall that is the norm for people to start then everyone is trying to meet new people, by winter semester everyone already has their group of friends. not to say that you can't make friends then but there is deffinatly a mind set.

welcome to the world of higher education Its a rollercoaster from hell

cragstar is on to something important. The biggest social events and interaction is for sure fall term. By fall term, the dormies have their buddies set (in my experience). If you're a pretty sociable person (have no problem talking to a perfect stranger), it's not a big problem (I do that for fun on campus). Also, try to take classes that encourage interactivity (communications is a good one) or smaller classes that you're more likely to see the same person over and over and develop a friendship. Either way, on the social aspect, get out there and network. I would even say go early just to meet people and visit the campus.
