If I could back in time and talk to myself as a highschool senior knowing what I know now about college life and making the transition, the advice I would give is that it is hard at times. College is a big step into the right direction and it can be a fun while learning. The best way to go about making the transition easier is staying focus and keep reminding yourself of your gaols. Simply because you are basically on your own. It can be fun but at the same time keep in mind the main reason you're there for. It's not as scary as some people make it seem.
