I am 19 years old, and am soon to start University. In truth I am terrified to live away from home for the first time in my life! I suffer from homesickness and will miss my family terribly. I don't know how to overcome this. I feel as though everything is very out of control.
Any advice will be helpful, thank you.
Dear Homesick Already,
As for going away to school -- we all are a little apprehensive at first. But you will meet other girls and boys and before you know it, you will be one of the crowd. It will be lots of fun getting around, meeting other young people and your teachers.
You will forget all your fears. I had a great time in college and everyone else did too. Just don't neglect your classes. Remember why you came to this college.
