Dear Faith: I only have three years until college and I'm nervous -- what's college really like?

Faith says: Everyone's college experience is different, but many students really enjoy it.

College is a learning environment where you take responsibility for applying what you learn and managing your time and class schedules. It is much different from high school where you have a lot of help and push from teachers and parents.

College requires more studying and effort in order to progress and graduate, but you will also have more independence and flexibility to focus on new interests.

One thing to remember is that you will learn a lot in the years between now and college, so the transition won't seem as tough as it might seem now.

Thanks for writing!
