College starts tomorrow

And I'm so nervous. I need to get it right and finish this time or I'll be really upset at myself.

you all will do great...the best advice I can give you (i'm a college prof) is to get organized early in the semester. if you get horribly behind in a class and start floundering, don't avoid it cause it will only get worst.

if you're a first year, keep in mind that all the other first-year students are thinking: "ok, i just want to be able to walk from class to the cafeteria to the library without publicly humiliating myself."

and finally, remember that faculty members are more than likely nervous the first day of class, and are wondering what you think of them.

i'm sure we'll all have a great fall term (my school doesn't start for two more weeks )

I'm sure you will all do fine. Just remember, this isn't high school anymore. The professors are not going to be there to "baby" you.....it's a whole new ballgame. There are caring faculty members, but also faculty who have the attitude of you either sink or swim. It's a whole new learning and growing experience. The best of luck to you all.

Amen to that!! (Coming from a college senior and former freshman myself)... I had to learn that the hard way, though!

Also, make the most of office hours and school services (I wish I would have). They are there to help you! Don't be afraid to ask questions and for help if you need it!

Good luck! I'm sure you all will do fine!!!

By the end of the first week your nervousness will subside. I didn't have to teach last semester and my students know I went to a ton of U2 shows, so I think I'll just talk about Bono until I remember how to teach again

Seriously, though, you all will do great
