There's a myth that college is supposed to be the best time of your life. You've dreamed about this for years. Studied hard, visited all the colleges and finally made your ‘perfect' choice. You were excited and scared. Looking forward to a magical four years.
The truth is, although college can be an amazing time in your life-it is hard! University of Illinois is a huge school with top academics. It’s easy to feel lost in the crowd or to find yourself overwhelmed with the pressure to achieve. The stress of making new friends is real. It can be hard to learn how to adult.
