Sure, I'll give it a whirl.

It's a hefty read, but the cliffs notes version of it is in the last paragraph (The explain all their conclusions in that final paragraph).

It's all about your level of commitment to fitness.
If you're worried about balancing a social life and fitting in work outs, why not just make going to the gym a social thing? Go with a couple of friends - you'll need somebody to be your spotter anyways if you're doing any lifting, and it's always nice to have a buddy to do your cardio work outs with!
And no, univeristy does not automatically mean study all day, every day. it's about balance. I personally cannot sit down and study for 6 hours straight if I haven't gotten in a good amount of exercise.
Your brain also functions better when you have had exercise, which means you can get the same effect as studying for a long time by studying for smaller blocks of time, but being more efficient in those times. Same goes for sleep; no sleep means you won't be able to focus and then studying just becomes a waste of time.
Figure out a routine that works for you - going to the gym in the morning, between classes or at the end of the day - and make sure you balance your life out - and you will be fine.
Oh, and avoiding the pizza can't hurt either!
