    Make the best out of your college experience by bringing your personality to the table. It is exactly what you make of it. It doesnt always cost money to have fun when you have friends or a supporter by you. Fun times can consist of finding someone to stick by you through the thick and thin. If you are the kind of person to stay in a shell then you have to find some kind of way to open up because college life is better when you spend it with those who are going in a similiar direction that you are. Most importantly I came to Christ through my college experience and it was the best decision I could have made in my entire life. I came to know Jesus Christ my sophomore year in college and He's been faithful to me every since. Keep God first in your endeavors and commit to Him all that you do and your plans will succeed. Also if you ever get a chance read Proverbs 3:5-6.
