7 mistakes we all made as college freshers


So you're into your first few weeks of college and it's not everything you imagined it would be. Here are the biggest mistakes college freshers make:

1. Thinking you will be in love with your course
While some may love their course, many are faced with the reality that it just isn't what they thought it would be. It's important to deal with this as soon as you realise so you can work it out and do something you actually love. Four years is a long time. 

2.Thinking we’ll pass the year by doing zero work
Rookie mistake – you will fail. Hard. 


3. Late night cramming
Early to bed early to rise is much healthier and productive than studying until 5am.

4. Shifting someone in your class
You spotted him in the first week of lectures fell madly in love, shifted him on the class night out and haven’t been able to face him since. Worse still everyone in your class will never let you forget it and make sure to bring it up as often as they can…oh the shame!

5. Joining 50 clubs and societies and attending none of them
Everything seemed so good so interesting. And the classic ‘it’s the best way to make friends’ was being thrown around like it was going out of fashion. So you joined everything from the tennis team to the tea society and haven’t attended one event.

6. Becoming a full time party animal
So you’re finally free and your weekly social life is a lot more exciting than your weekend one. Constantly receiving invites to events on Facebook it can be hard to decide which one to go to, so your solution? GO TO THEM ALL.

7. Thinking your life will revolve around Starbucks
Such a cliche girly expectation that a lot of us are guilty of. Think you’ll constantly have a caramel cream frappuccino during your lectures? Think again – those are damn expensive… You can have an americano with a shot of caramel on Fridays if you like though.
