We are college kids and we thought it would be cool to make a program that simulates college life.
What it does
It offers the user typical college situations and the user must choose what they will do. What the user might not expect is that there are some things that are out of their control and up to chance, and their score is affected by these factors!
How we built it
In Java, we initialized a score variable and used multiple if else statements (based on user decisions) and random numbers to affect that score
Challenges we ran into
Compiler errors, code sharing, not enough coding time
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Demoing! Building a program in 24 hours.
What we learned
We need to leave a lot of time to code. We should ask real people for help instead of the internet.
What's next for Super Special Awesome College Simulator 2016
There is still a lot of work to do and many ideas there were not implemented. We will try to make the point system more realistic and add more factors such as anxiety, motivation, sexual health, etc. We are open to connecting with University Health Services to get accurate data to better represent the score. This program will be a tool for prospective students to see what college might be like to help them navigate their first year and avoid downfalls.
