First year rom home At last you are in college. You can date who you want to, study when you choose and stay out as late as you please. and now that you've finally left the nest you realize, like pros: freshmen, that there's no place like home. Even so, the freedom that comes with college life is a good feeling. With that freedom, however, come the realities of life, and the word responsibility takes on a new meaning. No .onger does it mean taking out the garbage for your weekly allowance. Instead washing your own clothes, balancing your own checkbook, and, for many, setting your own alarm :onstitute responsibility. You suddenly realize you are not as mature as you hought. Your parents are no longer "Old men, nerds, con- ervative squares, or Bible bangersf' but people. And, best of all, they are your friends. After the newness of college wears off, loneliness sets in. lKaren Robinson from California said, "If I could have gone home that first month I probably wou1dn't have come back." You reach out to past relationships searching for something to fill the void. Long-distance phone calls to far- away friends have Dad on the warpath. You try to explain how you needed a friendly shoulder to cry on, but somehow a S200-a-month counseling session doesn't jive with Dad. Thanksgiving comes just in time to rescue you from the depths of depression, and you go home hoping to return to the old gang. But this is the time of realization. The old gang is just not the same, and quite to your disillusionment, neither is home. "It was really weird," Karen said. "I had been on my own all semester, and when I went home I had to tell my parents where I was going, when I would be back and who I was go- ing with. I wasn't use to that anymore." It suddenly dawns on you that you have changed and ad- justed to a new lifestyle. Things will never be the same again. Encountering these problems and many more are all a very real part of being a freshman. So if you were wondering whether you were the only one with these thoughts, put your fears to test. You were among friends. And most of them felt the same way. -- Kelbf Tolron ,W ii ,Q ' ,Q it if ef X, 'granite .
