Another week has passed, and the fall season has just begun. Pumpkin spice is a fan favorite for most, while others are enthusiastic about all of the fall activities; most go to haunted houses, Halloween stores, pumpkin patches, and oh yes…..Fall sports!
"Where are you going to college? What are you majoring in? Are you excited to become an adult?"; as first-year college students, we have all heard these overwhelming questions at one point. As much as we all like to say that we are excited, we are very nervous too. Who can blame us? As 18-year-olds, we have these questions to consider and the stress of leaving old friends, making new ones, moving from your childhood household into a dorm, and having a much heavier workload. To grow as an adolescent into a young adult, we all must go through uncomfortable and challenging times. Don't worry; you're not alone on this journey. Everywhere you turn to look, you will find there is a hand reaching out to help you.
Our first semester of the year is rapidly coming to an end, and then we will be away from campus for almost two months. Departing campus can take a toll on people as many students will be away from their friends and the new lifestyle they just got used to. Going home is great as you finally get to see family again and get to enjoy a home-cooked meal. I am sure I am not alone when saying that home is fun and enjoyable for the first week or two, then after that, you start counting down the days till we return to Dallas, PA. Despite these thoughts, there are many ways to keep in touch with friends until we all come back to campus.
