All of it is a lie.
Understand freshman orientation is nothing more than brainwashing, invariably of the leftist variety. You will be bombarded with the value of diversity, force-fed bogus statistics about campus rape, told (if you're white or male) just how much privilege you have, and (if I recall my freshman orientation) there will be some kind of touchy-feely kumbaya exercise which will have an almost cultish like feel to it. All of this is not for your benefit, but rather the benefit of political forces that are heavily invested in making sure youth think, behave, speak and vote a certain way...and continue spending $150 a credit on the education-government industrial complex.
Because of this, freshman orientation, especially for men, is completely worthless. Not only is it worthless, it's down right damaging as it misinforms, misleads, and misdirects you about the reality of what you're about to face. If you believe it you will make bad decisions that will not only fail to produce the results you want, but also serve to only worsen your college life. Therefore, I think it would benefit every male freshman at every campus at every school in the entire nation to get a real “freshman orientation.”
First, the rape statistics (which I guarantee you they are going to give) are completely bogus. One in three (or four or two, depends on the mood of the campus feminists at the time) women are not sexually assaulted. As you have no doubt read here on ROK the definition of “sexual assault” can now mean an “unwanted advance” or a guy who doesn't go scampering away at first rejection. This has a double-whammy effect on campus relations between men and women. One, women are afraid that every man is a potential rapist, about to jump them at random notice. Two, it makes a young man's job of approaching women that much harder with their shields raised. It also has a tertiary (look it up) effect in that such bogus statistics allow the feminists on campus to lobby for more government money to create “sex abuse shelters” or “programs” which are not intended to help actual, genuine victims of sexual assault, as much as it is to provide worthless women's studies majors worthless jobs.
Second, along similar lines you will constantly be bombarded with the “fact” that women are earning the majority of degrees. This is merely another head of the leftist-feminist hydra on campus where such propaganda is meant to bolster the esteem of women on campus and (maliciously at times) rub men's faces in the dirt. The reality is, yes, women do earn the majority of degrees today at the bachelor, masters, and doctorate levels.
The question is “at what?”
Or is it
And “Child Psychology?”
The truth is women earn the VAST majority of EASY and WORTHLESS degrees. This is not debatable, it's a fact as I spent the better part of two hours sifting through graduate data at the U of MN.
Regardless, the point is not to let this get you down or somehow think, “the girls are beating us.” They aren't. Not at anything that matters anyway.
Third, you have to get off of campus. The dorms are at best an OK starting point, but if you want parties, booze, and sex, you need to get your own place. Some people recommend frats, others recommend just finding a house with a bunch of guys, I personally recommend dropping the additional money on your own studio or one bedroom apartment. You can do all the college coeds, booze, drugs, and pot you want at your own joint.
Fourth, you need a vehicle. Taking a girl out on a bus is...well...as lame as that sounds. Get yourself a god damned car, and if you can wing it, a motorcycle too.
Fifth, you will have to master day game as it is during the day you will have most interaction with women. This translates into sitting next to the hot chick you want to bang on the first day of class (as people are prone to re-sit where they first sat) to knowing the study schedules of hotties at a library to just developing the balls to approach any girl out in the open because you'll never see any of them again after you graduate. Truth is you couldn't ask for an easier day-game environment, so much so I would even advise avoiding college parties and night game. But I know you and your girded loins are going to attend college parties anyway, but once you start realizing “this is lame” go back to day game.
Sixth, and most importantly, why are you going to college?
If you're attending college because “you were told to go” or “you want to experience the college experience” then cancel all your classes and get out until you realize the real reason you should attend – to make money.
Understand what is being asked of you when you attend a university.
You are being asked to spend $50,000-$150,000 of your money and 4-8 years of your youth on a piece of paper.
And it damn well better pay off.
I don't care how hot the chicks are.
I don't care what your parents told you to do.
I don't care what your guidance counselors told you to do.
I don't care how awesome Hollywood made “the college experience” look in the movies.
You are being asked to take on an insurmountable level of debt and spend at least half a decade of your most precious youth sitting in stale classrooms, listening to professors blather on, which you will slowly realize is nothing more than High School v. 2.0.
But that is the true risk you run – when it's all said and done, you have a worthless degree, that doesn't increase your employability, let alone wage, and you are now saddled with $75,000 in debt that will cripple you financially until you reach middle age.
Understand there is an education bubble going on in this country. And it is the most despicable, disgusting and evil bubble out there as it preys on the ignorant youth. Professors, teachers, guidance counselors, principals, the government, the teachers union, college administrators, the media, even your naïve parents are all in on it, brainwashing you from K-12 into thinking you
MUST attend college.
They then turn around, take your $150/credit in tuition and pay the most washed up, talentless, worthless, incapable people who couldn't hack it in the real world (professors) to "teach" you the ways of the world and somehow give you an "education." But in the end they hand you a piece of paper, that only after 6 months of a spectacular failure of a job hunt do you realize you've been had.
You owe the government money you can't pay back.
You can't get a job.
And the professors (who were such your buddy buddy friends) are laughing as they buy their latest Prius, Volvo, Subaru or whatever other gay shit-car they drive and give their kids free tuition because the university gave them that perk.
But there is a way around this. A way to make sure you don't get scammed:
Choose the right major.
The majority of kids today (70%) major in the liberal arts or what is also known as the “humanities.” While interesting these degrees offer absolutely NOTHING of value in terms of employment and skills. If you are going to drop $80,000 on a degree, you need to major in something that is going to pay off. These degrees are largely found in the “STEM” fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).
They are harder, but they are also in demand because while everybody demands an iPhone (requiring a bevy of engineers to make and design), nearly NOBODY demands an English lesson (which is why most English majors become
This may not be what you wanted to hear. Perhaps you were told to “follow your heart and the money will follow.” Perhaps your parents kissed your ass, lying to you, telling you you had some kind of artistic skill or talent when you didn't. Perhaps your teachers said at the age of 17 you were a “great writer” when that is patently laughable. It was all lies and bullshit. The Manosphere is not your mom, your teacher, or Oprah. We are men. And real men tell other men the truth. Because no matter how much truth hurts, it's the only thing that will lead you to genuine success.
