As an upcoming junior, I’ve had some time to reflect back on what my first year of college taught me. You definitely learn a lot of things during your freshman year, but here are the 9 most important things that I learned!
Being a freshman in college can be pretty tough. I remember searching through Pinterest for hours trying to find the perfect dorm décor. Little did I know, half of the stuff I bought for my dorm room, I would never end up using!

Being fit and keeping yourself healthy is a challenge, I know. Working out is even harder. First, you have to get motivated, then you have to wipe all of the chip crumbs from your fuzzy blanket, lace up your running shoes and, worst of all, you have to get to the gym.
Getting to the gym is always the most difficult part, the famous excuse that allows us to lay back in bed, shove a guilt-free handful of chips in our mouths, and press the play button on Netflix.
