According to the US Census Bureau's report on the number of college students in the United States, more than 500,000 high school seniors pack up and leave their homes for college each year, intent on starting the next level of their education. The freshman year of college is an initiation into independent living, but it can be incredibly stressful on someone who is not prepared. It is estimated that almost 150,000 students will dropout before starting their second year, and it is not always because of the angry professor or sub-par living conditions. Everything from the cost of living on your own to the stress of trying to balance a job, school, and a completely new kind of social life will weigh heavily on you. The key to being successful in your first year of college is to be prepared for anything that might arise, maintaining a strict, well-organized schedule, balancing your free time and new found social freedom, and putting the right amount of energy into your studies.
