College can be a very scary transition. You go from being in class every day with kids you’ve known since elementary school, to almost a whole new world with new people, new professors, and maybe even a whole new city. Let’s take a look at some of the top concerns for college freshman and ways to overcome that fear. 

Fear of being alone

  • Get involved in campus life. Go to social events, join clubs or sororities/fraternities, form study groups. These types of things will allow you to be more exposed to making new friends.

Time management

  • Make sure to have a planner/ notebook to keep priorities in check. Write down homework, plans, and events to make sure you have time for everything that needs to get done.

Debt

  • Graduating debt free is very rare but make sure to have a full understanding of student loans and how the whole process of paying them off works. Maybe sitting down with a financial advisor can help.

Homesickness

  • Staying in contact with family/friends on a regular basis can help make you feel better. Also, plan a weekend during the month that would be best to travel home. Talking to other students/ roommates that feel the same way can help normalize the feeling as well.
