The way I'm looking at college is an optimistic view. For all your life you have been around the same people. Going to college starts a new point in your life that will take you out of your comfort zone. You have to take this feeling head on and attack it. You are in your room on your first day of college alone; you can either stay in and play video games by yourself, or go knock on the door next to you, introduce yourself and offer them to play with you. Most people would dread knocking on a stranger's door and introducing themself but if you can overcome that fear then your experience in college will be all the better.
College is probably going to be the best experience of your (my) life, so don't fear it. Embrace it and take it as its thrown at you.
