OMG: Totally not looking forward to starting my undergrad at 23 and being surrounded by 18 year olds.

Heeeelp!

  1. I was in a similar situation, but started at 22. It's kind of awkward. Luckily I found someone is the same boat as me in one of my classes and befriended them.

  2. I started at 26 (going on my second year). The first term is the worst, but it gets better as your class mates mature.

  4. You're going to do so much better than most of them because you'll actually take it seriously. Enjoy.

  6. I started late too. You'll definitely notice the age gap, especially in first year when most of your classmates aren't even old enough to buy a bottle of beer. However, you still have to make an effort to make friends here or you'll hate it. Try joining clubs or intramural sports teams or just do whatever it takes to meet like-minded people. You'll probably be surprised by the maturity of some of the young 'uns and there are a few other older students out there. And get used to old man/woman jokes.

  7. Or you can just embrace it as a second late teen phase. I didn't start early but I dated someone who was a few years younger than me and it was a blast.

  9. I didn't have it as bad (started at age 19), but it was still weird to be around a bunch of kids who acted like they were fresh from the womb. A lot of kids in first year don't seem to have ever cooked, cleaned, done laundry, or ever really figured out anything for themselves.

    Good luck finding peeps!

  10. I'm turning 23 this September and will also be starting my undergrad. Yeah, kids may be a little immature but you gotta do what you gotta do.

  11. Fuck, do you know how much 18 year old pussy I would smash in your position? A shitload.

  12. @9, You said it! Some people have had everything done for them and you will wonder how they got into university not knowing how to clean or do laundry and that's the problem with society and parenting today, the kids are learning a lot in school but not the basics to function outside of the math textbook.

  13. I'm 25 and starting BA at Humber after graduating from UW. We should form a support system!
