My Macbook Pro's going to be here in one or two days and I was just wondering what programs I should install on it first. I was going to say any security programs but then I realized it's a Mac and I no longer have to worry about those things too much. So what are some programs that you guys recommend I install first?

And programs for college? OpenOffice?

If you find a need to do something and you can't do it, Don't worry, because "There's an App for that."
