We’ve been there before. We graduated from high school, and faced the uncertainties of college ahead of us. Introducing our latest series of articles, on your upcoming transition from high school to college; beginning with this article. The series will have 7 articles, with 1 a day for the next 7 days.
For the class of 2011, the end of high school is either here or close to being here! You’ve made it through four years of high school, and have handled everything from high school drama to AP exam’s to sports practice. You’ve had the same core-group of friends the past 4 years, gone to sports practice everyday after school, went to lunch 8,075 times, studied, had a couple boyfriends/girlfriends, got caught in pointless drama, and have gotten fed up with your parents more times than you can remember. Your past month of high school was/is amazing. You went to prom, went on the senior trip, and graduated! All in all, you’ve gotten used to the normal routine of high school and the certainty of living at home. But what comes next?
Over the next three months you’re about to transition from big senior on campus to the little freshman in an entirely new setting. You used to know everyone on campus, but now you’ll know 25 people tops on your first day. Classes are a lot harder, styles are different, parties are crazier, homes are now dorms, home-cooked food is now dorm food, and much much more. New challenges are going to be thrown at you all at once, and Welcome To College Freshmen is here to help you prepare for them. Check back each of the next 7 days for 1 new post in this series per day.
