Hi! Got a few questions actually. First, I am going off to college in August. 1: is it normal to be completely terrified? I am mortified I'll fail more than excited I'm making a life for myself. 2: do you have any tips for freshmen? 3: I am going into Graphic Design. What all can I do with it? I'm sorry. These questions keep haunting me. I hope they aren't a bother.

Yes, it is completely normal. It’s a scary time, but being a grown up isn’t as bad as your parents say it is. It will feel weird for maybe like a month or two, but you will get used to it.

There are tons of CollegeSmarts tips specifically for freshmen. (They have the “Freshman” text on the left side of the tips.) Also, we have a blogwith tons of college tips. Here are a few that would specifically be helpful for a freshman:

I have a degree in graphic design, and there are always jobs available. Print design will always have a special place in my heart, but web is really where it’s at. It pays more and there are more opportunities. If I were you, I would focus on digital design like apps, websites. and games.
