2016 Thanksgiving College Readiness Tips

So one month is officially done with, and it amazes me that I have survived. :) I don't want to make college sound horrible, it's actually pretty great. I came here with the preconception that I was going to be overly depressed and that I wasn't going to meet anyone, but I guess what's helped me through this is the fact that everyone is going through the same thing. In my suite, I have friends that are always inviting me to eat, watch Glee on Hulu, watch a random movie, play Taboo, buy Penn's awesomest cookies known as Insomnia Cookies, go to shows,etc. My roommate is pretty awesome and the very first day we set ground rules and so far, things have worked out great. Dorm life is probably the coolest part of being in college.
