Everyone thinks that by the end of high school you are fully prepared for college,but that’s not entirely true. Just listening to your teachers talk about their college experience is not enough to mentally prepare you for this new adjustment. Your college experience might be completely different from theirs. So here are some things you’ll want to know.

  1.  Your freshman roommates probably won’t be your best friends for life, and that’s okay.
  2. Get to know your professors outside of class.
  3. It might be tempting, but don’t skip class.
  4. “You will take naps. Lots of naps.”
  5. Don’t feel bad about changing your major a million times.
  6. Wait until after your first class to buy your textbooks.
  7. Learn how to manage your money.
  8. Make sure you understand exactly what your major entails.
  9. Keep up with the reading. An “all-nighter” isn’t the time to realize you shouldn’t procrastinate.
  10. Learn what kind of studying habits work best for you.
  11. There’s no shame in transferring schools. Go where you’ll be happy.
  12. “Study abroad, study abroad, study abroad! Then travel travel travel while you’re there.”
  13. You can now eat whatever the heck you want, so make sure it’s tasty AND healthy.
  14. If you go to college with people from high school still try to make an effort to meet new people.
  15. And most importantly, it’s absolutely fine to be undecided about your major.
