There are a lot of things that I wish I would have been cautious of going into my first year of college to save me a lot of stress. The main advice I would give myself is stay true to who you are and don't think that you have to soak up as much as you can or you'll be missing out. When you hear "make the most of your college experience" don't take it so literally like I did. I wanted to do the most, get to know the most people, and also forget about grades. Do not forget that you need alone time, so take it when you can, becuase if you don't you can forget who you are and what you think is important. You'll start living to just please others and do what makes them happy. Whether it's one friday night you spend in the library hitting the books, or one friday night catching up with your family don't be afraid of missing out. You have a whole semester of things to do so do what you want to do , but more importantly what you NEED to do.
