Going to college is an exciting, sometimes scary transition, at least for me it was. What was I going to major in, who would I hang out with, would my classes be too hard, would I fail out entirely? I was full of questions and the future was a frightening place. One of my biggest worries was making friends. I came from a really big high school in Phoenix- half my graduating class was also coming to UA. So the problem wasn’t that I didn’t have friends, but that I wanted to branch out and make new ones.
As a senior looking back at freshman year, I can honestly say it was a long and stressful time; a year I wish I would’ve taken full advantage of.
Freshman year is the first time you’ll be living away from the comfort of your home. You will have to make life changing decisions and for the first time and you’ll discover who you really are. It’s a year when you can start all over again, and leave all those embarrassing high school memories or nicknames behind.
