I sat in the reserved auditorium for freshmen orientation. It's filled to the brim with eager students ready to learn. I chuckled at those naive people who don't understand that it doesn't get easier. It's not as simple as going to college, get a job, and live happily ever after. The world is a cruel place, and just when you think you have life figured out, it pulls the rug from under your feet, leaving your ass sore.

The dean was speaking about zero tolerance on crime, but I knew that those rules didn't apply to the "elite." He went on to talk about how we are the future and blah blah blah.

"So without further ado, the dorms. I have to apologize. We had a mix-up or a glitch in the system, and we have taken on more students than we can house in our dorms." Murmuring began to erupt among the students. I sat with a blank expression. Why not panic, you ask? I told you: life. "Now students come on, calm down. We've come up with an excellent solution."

"What's the bright idea!" A random male student heckled from the back.

"Disregarding your tone, young man, we have a lot of other family housing available. The houses are reserved for faculty and students with families that want to stay close to campus. We can group you guys, and because it was our mistake, we will discount room and board. You will still get the college experience, although you are a little further from the dorms."

"How will we be grouped?" Asked some random girl. Some students began to cry about how this was their first- choice school.

"It will be random and co-ed." My ears perked up at this. I didn't want roommates, let alone male roommates.

"What the hell! My parents are never going for that!" Another random student yelled.

"I'm sorry, but that is the best we can do. We will send the info in the mail, and keys will be ready for pick up in a week at the Access and Security residence hall. That will be all. Hope to see you guys next week."

He walked as fast as he could out of there to avoid further questioning. The auditorium begins to clear, and I slowly joined the river of students as they flowed out the door. As I headed back to my hotel, all I could think of was that this is going to be one hell of a college experience.
