Because high school ending doesn't mean life is over. Here's to a new beginning!

Dear College Freshman,

The real world is a scary place. It's a jumble of responsibilities, problems, complications, and even a little bit of heartbreak, too.  And no matter who you are, eventually, at some point in your life, you'll have to step into the real world with the knowledge that there is no going back.

 Thankfully, society isn't as barbaric as they seem, because before we are thrust into the world of adulthood, we are given the proper training needed to survive it. They call that college.

They say that high school is the best time of your life, the highlight even. For many people, that is true, and because of that, it sometimes hard to let go off the place that you called your home for four years. The familiarity, and the routine is hard to leave behind. Not to mention the friends, and relationships that you might have to leave behind when you head off to the university. The transition from high school to college is scary. But college itself doesn't have to be.

College is a time for experimenting with new things. You learn new things, and meet new people. Living on your own, you’ll learn to take care of yourself. You'll have freedom, and with that freedom you'll also gain more responsibilities that will teach you to become a better person. You'll learn to interact with different kinds of people, and maybe along the way you'll get your heart broken. But don't worry, college will teach you to bounce back from that too.

College will help you grow into a person who is ready to take on the world. Everything in college, is meant to prepare you for the real world, and trust me, you’ll need all the preparation you can get.

So don't be scared. High school may be over. But a new life, your new life, is just beginning.

Sincerely yours,
A Former Freshman
