Woo-Hoo!!! Good-bye high school, hello sweet freedom!
You've been dreaming about this for 18 years & it's finally here...you're off to college.
Don't get me wrong, it's a little intimidating, too (not that you could have paid me to admit that at the time!).
Making this huge transition is going to be a challenge, but once you've prepared for it, things will be easy! You'll be able to relax & be excited about all of the fun that's right around the corner!
Whether you're a guy or a girl, will live in a dorm or an apartment, plan on rushing a sorority or not, have an endless supply of spending money or will be on a tight budget ---you will find something helpful on the next few pages.
*Just a side note, this site is also a great resource for your parents. I've attempted to paint a realistic picture of college life without glamorizing the catastrophic choices that some people make (& that your parents are petrified that YOU'LL make).
Not to sound like an afterschool special, but there's a lot of scary stuff out there & you'll run into most of it at college. The good news is, peer pressure is only as strong as you let it be, so you can find a crowd you're comfortable with & still have the time of your lives!
Buckle up 'cause it's gonna be a crazy ride!
