4. Adjustment Is Hard
Once the novelty wears off, you might start to remember all the good things about being at home.
Remember that going to live in a dorm is sort of like going to another country; all of a sudden, you are faced with a whole new array of cultures and traditions. Don’t despair, and remember to breathe!
When you're in a dorm, you're most likely to clash with your roommates about basic rules like how clean your room is and how loud your music is. This is a normal adjustment period, and it is good to create basic ground rules first before you get settled in.
Remember that it is ok to feel homesick; it doesn’t make you immature, so make sure you keep in close contact with your loved ones. They are, after all, the people you can count on no matter what.
Building friendships in college is a bit tricky. It takes risks like talking to the girl who is sitting next to you in the cafeteria. Not everyone is going to be your best friend, but a lot of these people have interesting life stories to share.
To adjust, always try to keep in mind that this comes with time. Set your schedule, try to make this area your home, and the rest will all come naturally.
