When I was a college freshman back in 1962, we had an orientation a few days before classes. I remember a speaker at the time saying that we should take a look at the person on our left, and then take a look at the person on our right. Only one of us would graduate!! This turned out to be true when I graduated. As a freshman, most kids are living away from home for the first time, and there are so many temptations on campus which will take you away from your studies. My advise is to avoid these temptations like bars, fraternities, and parties, and concentrate on your studies until you know you can handle college studies.
Be yourself. If you don't like to party, don't party just because it's the thing to do. Find what you like to do and pursue it in activities and in classes. I know far too many people who pursued a major just because they thought it would make them alot of money. If you know you'll be homesick, then consider going to school closer to home. Don't waste precious time and gas going home every weekend if you know you can't handle being that far away from family and friends. Also, if you don't eat that much, don't get a large meal plan in the dining halls. And most importantly know why you're there. If you really want the experience of a lifetime and learn more, you're on the right path; if all you want is money and success, then you should try to dig deeper.
