Recently, we posed this question on Facebook:
Here are some of the best responses!
“Doing all the reading” – Kyle
“Trying to remember who to call Dr. and who to call Professor! And roommate drama. I knew I’d have to figure out money stuff going into it.” – Christina
“Deciding on what I really want to study.” – Krisha
“Money and roommates are big problems. And what exactly each professor is wanting from their students…. Each teacher has a different approach and wants different from their students.” – Lexie
“Fighting peer pressure and temptation.” – Randi
“Making new friends who I can trust as well as my old ones.” – Jacqueline
“Long, cold, hungry, and sleepless nights. The academics, courseworks, and such aren’t really hard, it’s the realization that I’m an adult, a student in a foreign country, that really hits hard, and that slacking off and procrastinating is really out of question.” – Wei
“That I can never be a kid again and that if I want to be a strong applicant to grad schools, I must do something with my summers that has to do with academia and school…” – Saba
“Budgeting” – Brandon
Thank you to everyone who responded. Lots of great, thoughtful feedback. And some that even made us giggle (“The swarm of girls who keep wanting to be my girlfriend.” – Danny). Hope you all have an even better second semester!
