Great advice written for college freshmen by an upper class student. "I'm going to be honest with you, Freshman year is a weird time. You’re away from your parents, hometown, and old friends, and maybe even in a new state. It can be a very lonely time trying to make new friends and figure out the rest of your life (no pressure). But instead of sitting in your dorm eating ramen noodles, go out and get involved! Find a church and a small group and get plugged in; use your freshman year as a time to grow in faith and to allow yourself to excel in your studies and make pure friendships based on a Christ-like foundation; after all, those are the best friendships." "One of the most important things to make time for your freshman year is Jesus. Wake up 15 minutes earlier, listen to Christian music, pray, write down your prayer requests, and find bible verses to help motivate you during the week. Go to the bookstore and get a bible study! 15-25 minutes each day is not a lot, and it will be so beneficial to your life and your mental health." 1. Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” "This verse is so great. Its a good one to have hanging on your bathroom mirror or written on your walls. Even if you fail chemistry, God has a plan. Even if you gain the freshman fifteen, God has a plan. And how awesome is it that His plan is always better than ours?"
