I’m an eighteen year old Connecticutter with a penchant for coffee. Moving from Southington,CT, I’m expecting Baruch to broaden my horizons culturally. I really liked that it’s considered the most diverse school in the US when I first applied. With that, it’s also a very competitive school, so I’m a bit intimidated right now. There are a lot of concerns I have, but here are my top 3:
- I won’t be able to handle the workload.
- I’ll fail my required courses and have to repeat them.
- I won’t make a lot of friends.
I feel like almost every freshman at Baruch is worried about at least one of those, but still…
Hopefully, my first year at Baruch will help me open up socially and teach me to really focus on education. I was always so used to knowing everyone in Connecticut that for the first time, I’m having trouble talking to people here. I have a few friends from home in the city, but I really need to be able to open up and meet new people.
