I'll be a freshman in a month!

Hi y'all! :D I'll be a college freshman in a month! At first I'm really excited about this but as I get to know my future university deeper, I become more nervous and it seems that my excitement decreases while anxiety increases. Gosh. I didn't know that this was going to be this nerve-wracking. Now, I am currently pre-enlisting my subjects. It is a good thing for the freshmen because our subjects are already pre-determined means no hassle in looking for professors and subjects for now. But when I get to my sophomore year, that is when trouble happens. LOL. I think I'm looking too much to the future. :p I think I must savour every moment. :p Now, I'd just like to ask what do I need to keep in mind to make college one of the best experiences in mind. (Sorry for this discussion's wordiness. It's my first time to initiate a discussion. :p) Or are you an incoming freshman like me? Come on! Let's share sentiments. Haha! :)) I'm also curious to know what it is like to be in college in other countries. So as you know, I live in the Philippines. :p

I'm also from the Philippines, I graduated from college last year. It's normal for an incoming fresh man to feel nervous about going to college. This was even more intense for me since I came from the province and I knew that I wouldn't be with my friends - we'd all be scattered in Manila when we start college. However, that anxiety will go away as soon as you start making friends. It's quite important that you find yourself comfortable with your blockmates. The tough lessons are easier to relearn and to review when you have other people with you :) Thanks for the response on my discussion!

It's really nerve wracking at first but once you already in the first day of your class every thing will fall into pieces. Maybe you could go to your future university and observe so you wouldn't have culture shock.You could also check your college building and your room so it wouldn't be a hassle for you looking in your classroom. The most important you need to know is the whereabouts of comfort rooms. Just enjoy college life and be you. Good luck in your college life.
