When I first moved out as a freshman, I had a lot to handle, paying rent, maintaining my academics at a successful level, and maintaining a job. It was definitely a new experience but it's one that prepared me for my journey.
College experience is very different from high school, one where you have the opportunity to meet people from all around the world, one where you learn to network and be involved in all sorts of activities.
I love to be involved therefore I joined everything I can possibly join, it is definitely a good experience knowing that you have control of your future and you are provided with so many opportunities. My favorite thing about my freshman experience was meeting new people and getting close to my advisors. Maintaing a good relationship with professors and advisors is very important and it will help you on the long run. Of course at first going into a new environment can be a little overwhelming but being friendly and open will lead to comfort. Overall, my freshman year was tough but successful and life changing.
