SO much easier. Everyone starts over. Sure, you will occasionally see familiar faces if you stick around your state, but even those are rare. It’s so much easier to be the you that you want to be when you don’t have to deal with preconceptions like in high school. No one knows you in college. So let down all of those walls that you built in that terrible place called high school and let it all go in college. Put yourself out there. It’ll be hard at first, but everyone is thinking the same thing. Everyone wants to meet everyone, but we’re all awkward. Push through it and be that person that stands out. You’ll make an impression. For better or for worse, who gives a shit. The ones you’d want to stick around will and you’ll make the best friends you’ve ever had. It’s an amazing experience that you’ll only get once. Make the most of it, have fun, and learn some cool stuff!
