Also the thought of being around so many new people is very scary for me. I'm glad that there are student support services and everything, so there's someone there if I need help, and I'm going to try my best to have some fun and to meet people, but of course it's very overwhelming.
Oh I was bullied a lot in high school so I had the exact same fear too haha. But people at college are a lot more grown up and 110% nicer. If you want to get a head start on getting to know people from the comfort of your home, colleges usually have Facebook pages you can join specifically for making friends at the same campus. Otherwise clubs or your classes are probably the next best thing. Enjoy your college life
