1. There’s Less Homework in College
I get the same amount of homework as I did in high school, if not more. When you don’t have an assignment, you’re studying for a quiz; when your don’t have a quiz, you’re studying for an exam. You won’t always be doing homework, but it’s important to spend your time wisely.
2. Party Party Party; Everyone Does It
Not everyone does it and you don’t have to either. You’re friends shouldn’t pressure you to do anything you don’t want to, and if they do, then they aren’t really your friends. You can have just as much fun without going to crazy parties every night.
3. It’s Just Like in the Movies
It’s not going to be just like Animal House or Revenge of the Nerds. College life isn’t as stereotypical as you think. No one judges you; most of us are here to take the next step in our lives. No one cares where you’re from or what clothes you wear; they only care about who you are.
4. Your Roommate Will Be Your Best Friend
It’s a miracle when two strangers are paired up and they become best friends. It does happen, I’ve seen it. However, this isn’t always the case, so don’t be too disappointed if you don’t become besties. Having a roommate who you get along with, who isn’t too messy, and who doesn’t stay up too late is all you need. It’s always fun to hear funny roommate horror stories, I have a few myself. My current roommate however is super sweet, so I got lucky. We’re not best friends, but we have nice conversations here and there and she’s nice to live with 🙂
5. No Time for Fun During The Week
Many people think that you’ll either be way too busy or have too much free time on your hands. It’s really up to you. There is a ton of extra free time. College gives you a lot of independence, it’s up to you to decide how to use it. If you have a lot of things to do, but you push them off til the weekend, you will have plenty of free time during the week; that’s not always the best idea. It’s important to prioritize and space out you work, this way you’re not overwhelmed and overworked.
