No, but it would be cool to re-live it.

It's been 4 years.

A few recommendations I have:

1. Make friends outside of your freshman dorm floor. I made the mistake of not making many in my classes and found out later that half of the dudes on my floor were completely fake and didn't like me but acted like they did. We were all chill sophomore year and a few of them often threw big parties down the street from where I lived. Went to one of their parties in senior year and they threw me out and didn't let me hang after it was over (they used to let me stay over sophomore year or leave whenever I want in the AM).

2. Don't fall behind in classes seriously. Two kids on my floor flunked out freshman year. I finished freshman year with a meh GPA but had to cover up a lot of the slack I did in my first term by doing really well spring term. There were people on our floor that went out every weekend but still had 3.9-4.0 GPAs as engineers (like my roommate at the time) which honestly are achievable if you don't slack off and set aside time to study during the week.

3. Freshman people in general are more friendly than older classes. Hooking up is a lot more common freshman year. Most people get into relationships by their junior years. Eventually you find those few niche of friends you want to hang out with and your social circle becomes smaller over the years.

Eh it varies. I had two groups of friends I used to hang out with on weekends senior year. One of my group of friends had a huge group of other people who would hang with them. Met a lot of new people and some cute girls through them. Freshman and sophomore year, I remember running into random people at parties and never seeing them again (or briefly see them on campus but they don't recognize you) despite having a conversation with them.

Meh. For me, my sophomore year was an absolute blast in terms of my social life. I would do that again in a heartbeat.
