I didn’t know what to do because I am the first person in my family to go to college, so everything was a new experience for me. Thankfully I was able to find good help from family/ friends, and everything worked out. 
Advice for new students: Don’t be shy. Ask for help. Get involved. Starting college is a brand-new start, and you don’t have to be who you were in high school. Open up, and you will see that your time here will be more enjoyable. There are so many things you can do here in college; you just have to be willing to look.
