Life isn't better with your family in the same building. It's just different. My life got vastly more fulfilling after I left home, and I was deployed on a ship for 6 months at a time with the same people over and over. On a college campus, with a world of social options and people with common interests, as long as you get out and try, you should never be bored.
Also please study. If you have free time in your dorm, read something productive. You'll be thankful for it later, I'm certain.

Hi Trayvon! Great question. I was extremely homesick during my freshman year of college. For me, getting involved in organizations on campus was what helped the most. I met some great people and kept myself busy, so I had less time to think about missing home. I got involved volunteering in the community and met some of my best friends. There are so many opportunities on campus and around the community, so you can definitely find something that suits your interests.
Also, it may sound counterintuitive, but try to avoid going home for the first month or so you are away. This helps you get truly immersed in your new community and new home. It's okay to still rely on people at home (I called my mom several times a week for the first month), but trying to become more independent will help ease the transition.
It takes time, but it will go away. Best of luck!
