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