In doing so try to figure out what your likes and dislikes are. Try to paint that picture of yourself while you are here. That's what college is all about. Experiencing things never experienced before and in the process finding oneself. In doing all of this try to keep an open mind - one void of any preconceived notions and biases. And above all try to have a good time here. Wishing you all the best of luck! :)
