Section 2 Read and Think
How to Adapt to College Life Quickly When you first enter your college, you will find that differences between high school life and college life are great. In high school, we usually depended on our parents and teachers to solve all kinds of difficult problems. At college, however, we have to rely exclusively on ourselves. What’s more, we have to learn how to get along with our classmates and roommates. Almost every college freshman experiences some level of nervousness and anxiety. But don’t worry, here are some tips to help you adapt to college life as quickly as possible.
words

Section 2 Read and Think
1. Remember you are not alone. Everyone in your dorm is in the same situation as you. Talk to them about your own fears and anxieties. Chances are, they are feeling the same way and will be glad to have someone to talk to about it. 2. Step outside of your dorm. The beauty of college is that you can start over with new people. They don’t know your past; they will only know what you want them to know about you. For this reason, try new things and don’t be afraid to try on new personalities. This is a great time to figure out not only who you are, but also who you want to be.

Section 2 Read and Think
3. Make detailed study plans. They should include your short-term goals, what books to read at a certain stage, what extra curriculum activities to participate in and your daily activities. This will help you make full use of your spare time. 4. Don’t forget to enjoy it! College is about having fun and making new friends as well as learning new things. Living in a dorm is a great way to do so. You will have friends to hang out with and study partners for finals. Do meaningful things, take pictures, share funny stories — enjoy yourself. You are only young once!
