Holy Hell! You’re moving to your dorm or fraternity/sorority house. You must not have screwed yourself in high school and you’re parents like you enough to send you to college. Well, you’re first day at college is going to be a strange and an oddly satisfying experience.
It will make you believe that there is no space whatsoever at college. Parking is bad, elevators are worse, the RA is angry because he/she can’t get a break, parents want to take pictures and think that they’re child is the only one that anyone should notice, and oh yeah, it is a good day!
But, it is a necessary day. You’ll meet some new and exciting people who will become you’re friends and you’ll look back on when you first met everybody on the first and made fun of each other at the first floor meeting.
You made it. Dorm life at 18 is difficult but some of the best times you can have with some of the best friends you will ever have. Enjoy this time.
What to remember…
- Talk to new people and make friends.
- Leave your door open.
- Be patient with your RA.
- Let your parents have their moment of being proud, yet sad.
