    Yeah man like at MCC I just go in, get my work done and go home. I guess the real question here is, how hard is it to make new friends in a different state?

    No problem finding employment with that degree.
    My wife is a partner at an accounting firm here in Dallas. You never know, your CB Zone contacts could someday help. :)

    If your going to become a CPA then live it up in college LOL. You can pay back 22k later.

    BUT, keep your GPA up.

    Not that hard, I went from Texas to Indiana. I made some amazing friends my freshman year in the dorms, and would consider some of them my best friends. Everybody in college makes new friends whether they are 5 mins from home or out of state. I had roommates who's parents lived 5 mins off campus, and as the years went on they ended up hanging out with people who weren't from their high school circle more often. Making friends in college is easy, because everybody is trying to make new friends.

    Haha that is true though.

    Do you currently live in Indiana? I just meant moving to another state that I didn't go to college in. Making friends at the gym, bars, ect.

    No, I'm back in Dallas at the moment. I made friends in all kinds of places around there, I would recommend getting involved in a student organization or study group and you will start to network real easily. From there you can establish a good circle of friends and go out to bars and things like that. If you have a roommate you like you'll meet people through them as well. If you enjoy working out you should be able to meet friends at a gym; I used to play pickup basketball and soccer at our gym and you start to notice it's the same group of people out there a lot of the time. Intramural sports is another good activity; I played on an intramural outdoor soccer team.
