Getting used to college life can be scary. Being away from your loved ones and friends, but think of it as a fresh slate. You can reinvent yourself while you are there if you are shy in high school go to the Student Union and find a club/organization of people with similar interest. Don't go back home every weekend you will miss out on the fun activities that are happening around the campus. Also there isn't anyone to tell you to do your homework or go to class, so STAY on top of business and then have fun once the work is done.
