One of the most significant changes when a student comes to college is the transition from living at home to living in a residence hall. First year students typically live with a roommate, must learn how to resolve any conflicts that arise, utilize time management skills so as to not get distracted by all the fun opportunities college has to offer, and choose priorities that may follow them through their entire college career and beyond.

Starting college directly out of high school simply means a lot of changes in life. Moving to a completely different town where you know no one can be exciting and scary at the same time. I grew up and lived for 18 years in the same small town where everyone knew everyone. This made it very comfortable for me and I got used to always seeing someone I knew no matter where I was. Coming to college for the first time here at Fort Lewis, I knew no one.
