    I've been already back in college

    After one of my holidays, a friend had asked me "so back to college?"

    But by that time my holidays were over and classes had started for me.

    So if I want to tell him that, is the following OK?

    "I've already been back to/in college"

    or if I want to be more specific:

    2. "I've been back to/in college for a week now"

    The second one(that is I've been back) sounds, for me, as if I am saying it to someone who is studying with me,which he is not.

    Re: I've been already back in college

    I would use:

    1 I am already back at college.
    2 I have been back at college for a week now.
