Thanks for the replies, everyone! Cleared up some issues for me, but it wasn't as if I were stressing about campus life atm. As many of you have said, it's a bit early to make complaints about problems I haven't actually come across.
I was just wondering if the people posting on the "Gripes" forum were actually accomplishing anything purely through the act of posting since there are other sub-forums that have direct lines of communication to administrators.
Anxious at life in a new setting? Perish the thought.
