30 Things Every College Student Feels When School Starts Again

Back to school is sadly right around the corner, and even though I’m not going back, I know many who are. I can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic about the glory years. We all have our moments of pure excitement to see our friends, meet new ones, go to the bar on a Thursday between classes, and cry our eyes out due to stress, but all of that is what makes us love it so much! Here’s 30 things all college students genuinely understand and relate to.

  1. The struggle of navigating yourself around campus for the first two weeks, but being so excited to be there.

College is one of the best times of our lives, and no matter where you go to school or what program you’re in, everyone has one of these experiences listed above at least once a semester. To those going back, meet new people and make good choices. And to those going into their first year, may the odds be in your favor, because only the strongest survive. I’m totally kidding, have fun and enjoy the pleasure of frosh week!
