College can be an overwhelming time for newcomers. For most students, it’s the first time they’ll be living alone and away from their parents, making new friends, while earning a degree that will ultimately transition them into adulthood and the workforce. While this can be overwhelming yet exciting, the first year in college can pose a lot of challenges for college freshmen. Though there are always problems students encounter in university no matter their year in school, freshman students don’t have much to compare to their new situation, and can easily find themselves stressed out and missing home. Luckily, there are solutions to these problems.
One of the hardest things that freshman need to face is navigating their class schedule. From the moment you get into school, you will need to choose your own classes, plan your schedule and eventually find out where your classes are on campus. This can lead to a lot of anxiety and confusion. But, don’t worry.
