The first semester in college is tough. It often serves as a weeding out process, or survival of the fittest. Not necessarily smartest, but those most determined, prepared, and organized. Add to that the fact that you just left your home of 18 years and all your friends, the food is not great, the classes are hard, and you miss your dog. So kudos to all of the over 10,000 students at this school who made the cut, but especially to our local rep!
