For many, the hardest part of going away for college includes:
1.) Missing out on things their family / friends back home are doing.
2.) Being away from "comfortable and familiar" surroundings.
3.) Giving up dependency on family.
Despite the negatives, there are certainly some positives to leaving your home state as it enables you to develop independence and grow in many ways as a person. The only person capable of making the decision is you, but be sure to consult loved and trusted ones during your decision making process. Also, be sure to run the finances of the decision, as often moving away comes with transportation/housing/random expenses that should be understood prior to embarking on the journey.
