Transitioning to college is both exciting and stressful. Time management is one area that many students struggle with. I suggest that after classes, before returning to the dorm, go to the library to complete all homework. This is important because while dorm life is a blast, it's not conducive to studying. By doing this, once you return to the dorm you are ready for fun! Depending on what state you are moving to, you may struggle with some "culture shock". Do some research into the different states you are considering to make sure that it "fits" with what you are looking for. College is one of the most amazing times in your life but don't forget that it is about the school work...having too much fun first semester could result in no second semester!!! Time management is the key to success! Good luck!
