As a freshman, you should go into your first year of college with a fresh perspective — and debunking myths about college will send you on your way with an open mind.

Most myths are told to you because the person on the other end likely thinks they'll help you in some way. It's just like when your parents told you that you shouldn't make those silly faces, or someday it would get stuck like that.
