Entering freshman year of college will be one of the most emotionally draining experiences of your young life.
Following your high school graduation you'll feel on top of the world. College is a distant vision of a magical world that you've only seen on shows like Blue Mountain State and movies like Animal House.
August rolls around and college becomes more than a far-off fantasy. The nerves kick in.
Arriving on campus for orientation is one of the most overwhelming feelings you will have experienced. It’s a time when you wish it was still normal to hold your mom’s hand…
your parents leave and you have the dark and ominous realization that you've just been dropped in a strange place with no friends.
After pretending to be normal for long enough, you make your first friend! It is a feeling of pure accomplishment.
Right as the shock of being at college begins to fade, classes begin.
But then the weekends starts, and you remember you’re at college beginning the “best years of your life.”
