Thoughts Every College Student Has At Least Once

Yep, College Really Do Be Like That

Twenty-five of the lesser-known college facts every first-year experiences.

Graduating high school and starting college was one of the best experiences of my life. The first semester was new and exciting, and even a little bit scary. I kind of knew what to expect because I had siblings who attended university, but their stories never prepared me for what it would actually be like. To dramatically describe it, college was the dawn of a new era. It came with the promise of new friendships, experiences, responsibilities, and academics. I could finally schedule classes that interested me and fit into my sleep schedule (you'll never see ME at a 9AM), and with the wide variety of clubs offered, it was easy to find one that I enjoyed. The first semester of college is full of surprises, here are a few spoilers.
