Will it be like your high school experience? Will you be able to handle it? Will it be fun and exciting or will it be scary and nerve wrecking? Too many questions and possibilities come to your mind when you hear these two words.
From childhood to adulthood, high school has allowed you to gain a sense of what it is like to be an adult. But when you enter a college, you go through one of the biggest life changes as you are surrounded by strangers in a totally new environment.
This phase allows you to fully take ownership of your time, responsibilities and who you want to become. But knowing things in advance gives you a good start and you can focus on other things and make your college life a memorable one.
Let's take a look at the things you should do and things you should avoid when you start your college life.
Spending money is an art that every adult needs to master. At the start of your college life, attending parties, weekend hangouts, shopping would seem pretty tempting. But you'll end up being penniless. Trust me.
Wardrobe in dorms can be a big headache for students. Carry stuff which is essential. Don't overload your stuff so that it becomes difficult to manage.
College is all about networking and having a good time. Meeting new people can broaden your horizons and have many different perspectives to think about.
Just don't pick a major subject because it can give you a good job, it is okay to be ambiguous. Search and explore and choose something which you are passionate about.
Who said you can't study and party in college life? A good time management allows you to get good grades in all your classes and still have time to be in clubs and have fun.
Checking out a guy or a girl becomes much easier if you are in the same apartment or flat. But you must be aware of the after effects. Life will be better if you don't choose someone from the same surroundings.

For your first semester of college, chances are that you'll have a randomly picked roommate. And it is possible that you might not get along. So, don't expect too much, just go with the flow.
College life can be really happening if you get involved in campus activities, events and other shows. Do whatever interests you and participate in events that you are passionate about and not what others are doing. You know you have the potential for greater things than Netflix binges and long naps.
It is completely normal if you go for grocery shopping alone. You have your list and you know what needs to be stocked up.
College life can be exhausting to the extent that you may not get time even to look at yourself. Just a few days before your exciting college life begins, take enough sleep.
They probably have hundreds of students, so don't expect them to give you special treatment. Don't try to be in good books, just perform well.
