Chill out, freshman!

It’s natural to be excited about starting college, but it’s important to stay calm and collected. Don’t try to do too much too soon. Take your time to explore the campus and get to know your surroundings. This will help you to determine where you want to hang out and what activities you want to get involved in.

Know thyself

You’re in college now, and there’s no one to keep you in check. You need to know who you are and what you stand for.

You’ll meet people from all walks of life in college, with all sorts of different beliefs. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for everything.

Beware the “September Rush”

This is especially for the ladies, but young guys should be wary too. Older students will be hitting on you. You may not be used to this kind of attention, and your ego may be boosted, but be careful of smooth-talkers who have been waiting for the “gold rush” of young, sweet, and impressionable freshmen.

College can be a dangerous place, especially for freshmen. Be wary of older students who may try to hit on you or take advantage of you in some way. Never go to parties alone and always be aware of your surroundings.

Don’t compare yourself to others

Don’t compare yourself to others or “try to keep up with the Joneses”. Focus on your own goals and don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

People come from all different backgrounds and financial situations. Don’t go comparing yourself to others and wishing you had what they have. Be grateful for what you do have and focus on your own journey.

Have fun! You’re only a freshman once

  • Have fun! You’re only a freshman once, so make the most of it. Do things that make you happy and explore your interests.
  • Use your free time wisely. You’ll have a lot of free time in college, so use it to nurture your hobbies and learn new skills. This could lead to new opportunities and friendships.
  • Don’t forget about your faith. College can be a challenging time, but it’s also a time to grow and learn. Don’t forget to set aside time for your spiritual life.
