First and foremost, when you go to college, you will need to choose your classes and create your own schedule. Although there are counselors to help you with this, a lot of it needs to be done on your own. So, don’t be afraid to ask questions if you’re unsure of anything. Next, the college you attend will likely be much bigger than your high school. And, if you think back to your first year in high school, you probably had a hard time figuring out where your classes were too.
Before your first day of classes freshman year, you can overcome this challenge by getting a map of your school and taking a day to practice your schedule and see where your classes are. You can do this with your roommate or with new friends you meet at orientation, to get some support and make the experience more enjoyable. You don’t want to be lost on your first day of school!
