Do you find it exciting when someone you know is in your college class?

I look at the enrollment list just to see if anyone I know is in any of my classes. Like some Facebook friends or just people I knew in the past.

It feels like High School over again if I knew some of my classmates.

One thing I learned is if someone blocks me on facebook and they see me in class. They will unblock me.

I didn't know anyone in my classes. New faces each class. Was nice.

Didn't know them afterwards either.

No... being in the same class just means you're in the same lectures which are only a couple hours a week. It doesn't mean you'll be working/not-working together or even talk/not-talk to the other person.

I hardly know people in any of my classes. I only get to know people once we get placed in a group.

I rarely have people I know in my classes. Even more so now that the basics are over and done. I think the last time was Summer 2011?

I didn't know anyone in my class when I started university in September.

But that's life, you meet new people and make new friends along the way =]

I didn't really know anybody. Still don't.

I'm going to a larger university for my final year, so maybe I'll get to know some people.

Probably not...

Not really. The main reason for that is that I'm in college to actually learn something and not mess around. I'll be glad to hang out after class, but whether they're in my class or not makes no difference. When I see people chatting in class, it's infuriating. For lower division classes I don't care because it's all general ed really, but upper division classes should be met with more respect because that's what you're actually there to learn and I don't like random chatter boxes getting in the way of that.

I didn't go away to university since it was located in my city. I drove to school and left. I hung out with my friends from highschool still so I didn't really bother to meet people from University. I found that most of them had already established their cliques of friends from living in residence. At the time I was also dating a girl who I hung out with 90% of the time and only cared about that. Kinda wish that I wasn't because it woulda been pure debauchery had I been single.

i had a group of friends from highschool that were in most of my classes last year (my first year of university). it's nice to go into university with some old friends, but at the same time it discourages you from meeting new people, at least for me it did. i plan to change that this fall, though.

It depends completely on the person. That being said, I go to a small college at the moment, and you pretty much get to know nearly everyone.

No, it never excites me. Sometimes it just makes me more nervous since it's never going to be someone I'm close to. My close friends go to other schools in town and out of state. If I know anyone, it'll be someone I vaguely knew in high school or from a past college class and it will just make me feel awkward knowing that they're sitting there if I have to give a presentation or speak in class or something. In classes where I've been forced to partner up or form groups, it's always worked out better to work with strangers.

I lived in Kuwait before going to a small college in NY, so having come from all the way over there, it was a crazy surprise to discover that I'd met this girl in my class year about 2+ years prior at anEMAC basketball tournament.

I've also met some people in college--international and local--with whom I have mutual Facebook friends. Pretty odd findings.

I've gotten together with a couple friends from high school (was only half a year since I saw them).

A friend that I've known since 1st grade, and see roughly every week goes there.

Have seen people I recognized (was even recognized by one kid that I knew from a few classes through elementary school) from other schools and what not.

I even met a really good friend of mine that I hadn't seen in pretty much 4 years, since we went to different high schools.

What have you done that makes people want to block you? I've never had that happen to me and I'm curious.

I never see any of the spanish girls(conclusion: they are pregnant) i remember from high school. My high school was ghetto but my college is almost all white people. Huh? class is quiet and the white people around me know the answer to the questions? I had to adjust to being around white people and I like it. These white folks sure are more friendly and smarter than anyone I ever knew in high school
