    So, in about a year or so, I plan on going to some college, living on campus.

    So, I figure I should learn to cook, but is there any point? I might be paying for a meal plan, but what if the food sucks? Would I be wasting money?

    In that case, wouldn't buying groceries and cooking them be a cheaper way of living?

    College life and cooking skills go together like rabbits and wolves.

    Get to know your microwave and you'll be golden.

    That sounds like a very unhealthy habit. Microwaveable food doesn't sound very appealing, much less appetizing.

    Just telling you the truth. Unless you're going to a very prestigous school, you're not going to have a kitchen available to you at all times. You'll need to eat some prepackaged food here and there. Just stick to a meal plan for your first two years until you get a better dorm that may have a kitchen.

    I don't see how you can say microwavable food is not appetizing unless you've been brought up in a rich home that only serves Angus Fillet's for dinner.

    You'll learn to love soup and ramen.

    Actually, I know a lot of students who rarely even touch the microwave. I'm rubbish at cooking but all my flatmates make their food from scratch most of the time. You should buy a student cook book (there's tons of them available) and maybe have a go at practising a few meals from there before you go, because the dishes are usually designed to be simple to make.
