As an emerging adult you’re leaving the drama of high school behind; the teachers, the uniform … finally!
There is so much to look forward to. For starters, you’ll be living away from home and making your own rules. Oh, and then there’s the freedom! No curfews or strict rules – just the pure bliss of independence … making new friends, meeting the love of your life (or not), and studying what you’re passionate about.
However, starting Uni can be a daunting experience, even for the most confident young adult. It’s a time of enormous change and readjustment: a new lifestyle, new study demands, and coping with the opportunities of greater independence while living without your family for the first time; it’s a lot. We’re taking fear and excitement, all at the same time, right?
The good news is that most students eventually handle the transition from school to University well whilst dipping into newly found freedom and (hopefully!) balancing it with an increased sense of responsibility.
Good luck on this amazing journey!
