How to feel less anxious about going off to college

August 17, 2012
Most students feel some anxiety before they are off to college.  They are leaving familiar surroundings, friends, and family.  This makes them feel insecure and a little bit apprehensive about what to expect.  Finding new friends on your college campus can be the easiest way to make the transition to college.  I once met a freshman girl on a college tour who gave us her suggestion for meeting new friends.  She started on the top floor of her dorm and walked down the stairs, getting off on every floor.  She introduced herself to everyone who had their door open and by the end of her first day of college, she had met more than thirty people.  Not a bad idea.
