as a mature, second-semester sophomore, I have three simple steps to make your freshman year super simple.
- Be yourself
you’re a great person. just be nice. be yourself. you got this. those that should be in your life will be drawn to you and will stay in your life. you need to understand that being yourself is the key to making friends- yes going to all of the events will help but you will only find true friendship when you’re being you. also, remember that friendships take time. remember how long it took you to call your bestie in high school your bestie? it took longer than a month. so keep that in mind!
- Stay calm
I have seen so many freshman look so nervous. just relax. you’re in a new space where you’re going to grow in ways you never thought you would. so just be open for love, growth, happiness and healthiness. you’re going to be just fine.
- Pay attention
Make sure you pay attention to your surroundings! this is a good rule to follow for general safety, but there could be some really cool events going on around you! so just pay attention!
