It would be useful to know where you are taking the courses as people's expierences will vary from college to college.

Well you could get a headstart and start programming now. Wrapping your head around the boring basics (pointers, templates, etc.) will be much harder than learning how to make graphics and the game loop (which is "fun" :) )

I'm not Ceoddyn, but my suggestion would be to learn Python from a book (such as O'Reilly's Learning Python. Its a great language that lets you be productive fast. You could then learn C/C++ later on, since you will probably need that for a real game development program.
