You’ve been thinking about this day for years, preparing for it for months, counting down the days to it for the entire summer, and now here it is staring at you face to face. Move in day has finally arrived and on the surface you are probably bursting with joy, giddy with excitement about all the possibilities and freedom lying directly ahead of you! You’re a “college kid” now—you make your own schedule and play by your own rules! You can stay out all night and sleep in all day, and in a few months you’ll come home for the holidays with that “grown up glow” because you will have it “all together.” You have the perfect timeline for you freshman year: you’ll be best friends with your roommate, get into all the organizations you go out for, miraculously avoid the freshman 15, and make straight A’s while maintaining a great social life. You have it all planned out, and you’re on the fast track to success! That is until you watch your parents’ car disappear into the skyline headed back home and you’re standing on the curb of an unfamiliar dorm, at an unfamiliar school, surrounded by a terrifying number of unknowns, choices, and people you barely know.
