Now, I'm only on my second semester of college, so I'm certainly no expert, but I do know this:
I started college feeling absolutely miserable and homesick and friendless. And now I am growing in the Lord more than I ever have before, I am surrounded by loving and amazing friends, and I am plugged into organizations that fit me perfectly.
I love college, but I also know that going to college is scary and hard at first. As your sister in Christ, I want to help you out. So if you are a member of the upcoming class of 2016, keep an eye out for something new for you every Wednesday. (Also, if you're a sophomore or junior in high school and you're thinking about college already, perhaps this can ease some of your fears as well).
If you have any specific questions you'd like me to answer, go ahead and leave them in the comments or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll answer them.
In a few weeks, I'll go ahead and have another College Q&A Day. I had one at the beginning of last semester when I still wasn't quite sure about everything that was going on. I hadn't made a lot of friends yet and I was still homesick. You are free to ask me any questions about college life: dorm life, food, money-making, how I made friends, how I picked my school... anything like that, and I will do my best to answer them. If I don't know the answer, I will ask someone who does know.
I am here for you in prayer (class of 2016, you have no idea how wrapped in prayer you are right now) and I am here for you to answer questions the best I can. I want to encourage you and love on you as you make the huge decision about which university you will attend.
So leave me questions about college. I will answer them over the next couple of weeks. And keep an eye out for Wednesday college tips.
Have a lovely day, friends.
