    Hi @maldrin44 the change from secondary school to college can be exciting and scary at the same time. I just wanted to say that you are not alone as there will plenty of people who are starting college this year and will be feeling anxious. I can relate to this as when I first started college, I felt nervous too especially with the social side of it. I'm sure your college will be very lovely and you will meet lots of nice people. College is a bit more relaxed than school personally and your teachers are more relaxed and chilled.

    It is totally normal to feel anxious about going to college as it is a big jump. The college environment can be very relaxed and they do lots of clubs and activities. One big bonus too is that in some colleges they offer 1 to 1 support and support in general if you ever needed it. I'm about to start my second year of film college, and I feel a bit nervous too.

    I'm always here if you want any advice or would like to chat. :)

    Wishing you the best,
