Transitioning Into College Life and Young Adulthood
Perhaps meeting new people all the time at parties and in the dorms has you feeling a little out of it. Everyone seems so confident, but you’re not always feeling it. Who are you really now? Who can you be?
Also, getting used to being at college has had its challenges. Roommates, profs, new romantic relationships, working in groups… Plus, life seems to be flying past you. At Northwestern, one quarter barely gets started before it’s time to move on to the next. You can’t seem to catch your breath before being pushed into new classes with new students, new profs, and new responsibilities.
The pressure is relentless. The pace at lightning speed.
