Some might say getting there is the hardest part, but sometimes getting through a rough beginning of your freshman year is more difficult. This is adjusting to college life through stock photos that are weird af.
When you first arrive, you introduce yourself to all kinds of new people.
Shaking their limp, clammy hands can be tough. Actually, the worst.
The roommates that are obsessed with each other
The people in your hall are usually pretty nice, but there’s always that one pair of roomies attached at the hip, like the twins from The Shining.
You’re gonna have to get used to the STEM requirements, too.
Physics 100 was never going to be a cake walk, but you expected it to at least make a little sense.
As for the beds, well…
They have character. That character just doesn’t lend itself to a good night’s sleep.
Syllabus after syllabus
Your first few lectures are overwhelming, so you decide to just roll with it even though you’re drowning.
Your body isn’t used to all nighters and 8 ams
You have to stay awake and engaged even though after that all-nighter you feel like a reanimated corpse.
The procrastination kicks in
Sometimes, the best thing to do is chill out and watch Netflix— that is, until it’s four in the morning and you realize you’ve finished three shows and zero assignments.
Trying to stay organized is impossible
So you try to acquire some time management skills.
I DON’T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING
Going to office hours doesn’t make things any clearer. Your professors might as well be speaking Greek.
Things can seem to get a little overwhelming the first few weeks of freshman year, so don’t forget to give yourself some room to breathe and have fun!
