Picture this: It's freshman orientation. You just packed up your entire life, kissed your parents goodbye, and now, a swarm of new students are marching onto campus alongside you. There are banners everywhere, clubs advertising their organizations, and people talking all about Greek life. There are presentations about financial aid, scholarships, and study abroad programs to sit through. You're just as nervous about fitting in as you are excited about all the possibilities that await you. Since astrology can be applied to literally everything, let's talk about how each zodiac sign feels about freshman orientation because, chances are, it'll feel so relatable.
No matter what your zodiac sign is, you're probably feeling a whirlwind of emotions before heading off to college. During my freshman orientation, I was filled with anxiety, passion, drive, and yes, even boredom. I was concerned about making some new friends, stoked about pouring some knowledge into my brain, and scared about finally being away from home for the first time. But the thing that really surprised me was the realization that college wasn't going to be all about parties, dates, and wild activities. I realized time spent between classes would feature a whole lot of studying and less time playing "truth or dare" with my college mates — but I know I'm getting a little ahead of myself. Right now, there's no point in worrying about professors and exams and midterms and majors. Right now, it's time to just enjoy the beginning of a beautiful four years.
