When I was a senior in high school, college meant escaping my boring town, getting away from my parents and having fun. However, going away to a university in Iowa definitely taught me that college is not about escaping life, but it is instead facing your own reality. I would tell myself that as much as you want to escape, financially it would not be the best idea. I already have $40,000 in loans for going to St. Ambrose for two years, and I ended up having to come home because my dad got sick. Had I stayed home and went to a community college, I could have received my associates without having all of that debt. I would also tell myself that if you choose to go away to school, don't sell yourself short. Don't try to be you other people want you to be just because you;re in this new town with new people. Because when you lose yourself, it's hard to figure out anyone else and get yourself back.
