Where are you going? You can look up places around the college, see if they have any trails or clubs.  Schoolwork and social life should keep you pretty busy.. but there's always time to RUN.  You'll have to find/make the time.  Do a little of your schoolwork everyday and plan around social events/parties.  Don't party too hard, though  Wink

But of course! school and running most of all Grin

Thinking early nights, early mornings and try out doing my runs in the morning since in theory that would be the best available time.

But being college doubt that would last long. lol Hell, I still don't have a routine for my runs xD

I will tell you right now... you will find yourself wanting to do runs at 1 and 2 am on weeknights.  Our gym was 24 hours and it would be the middle of the night and I would getthe urge to go workout. 

On weekends, you will be midday... right after the hangover goes away.

Congrats and enjoy.  The one thing I tell people is to remember there is a difference between school and college.  Keep the school in mind, but experience college.

I used to, and still run, at around 5 or 6 pm after my classes were done for the day. I used to run in my college campus' gym at around 6. I did have a running course one semester, and participated in a few of the school runs. I eventually set up a schedule to run two hours to a half hour before the sun fully sets (early nights). You'll get the rhythm of it though, schedules in college are quite different as one semester you might have all night classes (5-8pm), and the next you'll have two classes from 1-4pm every other day, and two more from ...say...9am-2pm on alternate days. I've never been a morning person, but most of my friends said that our campus was perfect at around 6 or 7 am. I remember that I did start doing midday runs on the weekends, but they were usually at the local bike trails rather than at the school as I lived off campus.

In my humble opinion I found it much easier to manage exercise in college, but maybe it was because I was older and had a better idea of what my goals as a runner were. I also noticed I was able to study better if I took a break to run.

On a side note, in the 7+ (grad student now) years since I've been there I never had any problems running barefoot at my college (public university). At the gym shoes are required, outside they are not. You might also meet a running buddy, which is nice if you like to run at night when it starts turning dark.

...and yes, to paraphrase Justin: "experience college". I know I like it a whole lot more than Elementary, Middle, and High School combined.
