Starting University!

Hi everyone!

My name is Teja, I'm 18 and I live in Slovenia (Europe). After 8 years of elementary school, 4 years of high school (that's what the system is like here) and a near-perfect score at final exams (99.5/100) which enabled me to enroll anywhere I want, I'm finally entering my first year at University. I actually joined this community last year, but I had nothing to say; however this year I'm soooo excited I HAVE to write about it :D

So, I'll be attending the biggest University in the country - the University of Ljubljana, Department of Social Sciences, and I'll be "majoring" in Cultural Studies (you actually pick a program here which has about 2/3 of classes you have to take and 1/3 you can choose by yourself). There's no such thing here as a double major etc, but you can enroll in another program after you've completed your 1st year (so I'm pretty sure I'll be doing that next year).

So, my classes this year are as follows:

  • Social and Political Anthropology
  • Introduction to Philosophy
  • Introduction to Sociology
  • Introduction to Communication Studies
  • Sociological Theories

  • Statistics
  • Introduction to Cultural Studies
  • Religion and Culture
  • Psychology of Communication
  • Social and Political Psychology

    Both Spring and Winter
  • Foreign Language I: English for Specific Purposes
  • Physical Education

    Lots of "Intro to"s for me this year, but it only gets better after this, so yes, I'm excited! I'm not too worried about the new amount of work etc, because I'm sure I can handle it; it's the new people I'm kinda scared of. I'm not the most communicative person around, but I don't exactly want to stay friendless. So I guess I'll have to work on that.

    Also, the school year starts October 1st for me, so I still have a month and a half long vacation ahead :P
