... nerve racking?
If you decide to live in a dorm, introduce yourselves, make friends.
If you don't it'll be scary, and feel paranoid (like how I'm feeling now).
I don't think I want to say anymore, it's kinda embaressing...
I lived in a dorm last year. As long as your roommate(s) isn't an *** you should be alright. But you will have to be more independent. Shopping and **** like that was a little difficult for me in the beginning but the whole thing is good for exposure and you'll find that your anxiety slowly goes down after a few weeks. One important thing to remember is to go out and meet new people as much as you can stand during your first few weeks there. This is where you will meet most of your friends for the year. (especially if you are a freshman) It is really hard to get into a group of friends after its been a few months and their relationships have already solidified. I learned that the hard way. Also see if your school offers free group thereapy it really helped me out.
