I’ve been so excited to share these tips with you all! Before I even finished high school, I was nervous to start my college career and didn’t have a clue of what the next two and a half years were going to teach me. It’s scary when all your friends are going to different colleges, maybe even in different states or countries, and you may feel that fear grow if you have such bad anxiety as I do. I started in community college for my Associates in Science so the experience has been relatively medium for me but this coming Fall I’ll be in a large university a few cities away. Of course, I’ll be sure to add what I’ll be learning there to this blog.
Regardless, college is not to be taken lightly. The experience is very different from high school in so many ways! College gives you a taste of the real world and it is different than what they teach you in high school, at least it has been for my friends, family, and I. And just so you all know, the stuff you’ll learn is more than just how to budget. Life experiences are ripe and ready for you whether you realize them as they are happening or maybe even later on in life. It’s up to you if you choose to accept this mission, to learn life while learning in college. And trust me, college is not meant for everyone and that is 100% alright. It’s hard on you mentally and physically so don’t take this path on your journey lightly.
You can; however, take what your about to read with a grain of salt if you want to learn about college differently. So, with formalities out of the way, let’s get into the tips, shall we?
