About Me

My name is Spencer. I'm 23 years old, and I'm a junior at Princeton. So far college has taken me five years. I've taken time off to work, transferred to USC and come back, and learned a lot along the way.

I like to think about life and what I'm going to do with mine.

I've met a lot of people my age with the same sorts of thoughts so feel free to read, take surveys, and comment.

Greater implications

Now that I've expressed some points of view and issues concerning excessive alcohol and binge drinking, I want to continue onward in related, but different directions. This will help clear up any questions from people who might wonder why I care so much about my peers getting drunk.

Let me start with this: do you think that we students begin college at too young an age?

I've been thinking about this for a long while, and I've recently come to the conclusion that I think we do begin university too early. I think that we're not as mature as we should be when we begin college and that that immaturity can lead to stress and a harder adjustment for many of us. More to come soon.

  1. What would be the alternative? Staying in high school or an intermediate school longer? Taking a gap year? Working for a year? While I agree that some are not ready for college at age 18, what about those whose home situation is restrictive to their growth?

    Also, I'm not sure about this, but I think American students start college at the same age if not later than their foreign counterparts. I wonder what effect this has had overseas?
