20 Ways You Know You’re Going to be a Freshman in College!

So you’re heading to college this year. At this point all sorts of things are going in your head. What will happen? What boy will I meet? How will my classes be? Will I survive? Well, as you prepare, laugh with us as these 20 ways you know YOU’RE going to be a freshman in college!

1. You’ve already Googled/Facebook stalked your new roommate(s) at least once.

2. You’ve found out how big your dorm room is going to be and created a Pinterest board of the things you want in it.

3. You’ve experienced all the emotions already about leaving your BFF behind.

4. You’ve already picked out the PERFECT outfit for day one of orientation.

5. You secretly hope a cute guy sees it.

    Now I feel like I’m doing something wrong cause I haven’t done any of these lol. A, I have already met my roommate, had an early orientation, and know most of my professors because my brother went to the college I’m going to and I visit there every year with my church for competitions and stuff. (It’s a Christian college) B, I am not looking for any relationship at college because my priority is to learn about music and get closer to God, (if he sends me someone then great but that’s not really on my mind) and C, I’m not a compulsive Starbucks drinker or fast food goer lol. Don’t drink coffee and don’t like spending money XD
    But anyway, that’s just my two cents. Cute article though and I’m sure a lot of people can relate 🙂

    This is probably the most accurate information about freshman in college that I’ve seen so far. I am going to be a freshman this year and I am nervous but extremely excited to see what God has in store for me as I step into this new chapter of my life!

    Yes. And I’m terrified! I know next to nothing the average high school graduate from a regular high school knows, and I feel like my parents expect me to get straight A’s all through college, but I’m pretty sure I’ll barely get a D.
    I’ll need MORE than a miracle to get throught the first DAY (!!!) of college!

      You know you’re going to be a second year freshman when you transfer colleges and only three credit hours transferred from your first college.

    #17….yeah, that doesn’t going away until you pay off your very last textbook. And you’ll still have some days where you wonder if this is a huge mistake, but then you realize you can’t imagine yourself anywhere else 🙂

    I will be next year. I plan on going to a Christian college about two and a half hours away from home. I am already super excited while simultaneously trying to make the most of my senior year before it is gone!
