A first-year college student is talking to a counselor in the Center for Student Services. She has been talking about some of the difficulties of adjusting to college life. She comes from a small town and is attending a large state university. She speaks openly and seems to be in good spirits; she even smiles at times: My new friends seem so much worldlier and confident than me. Most of them have traveled out of the country have the latest greatest smartphones and computers and act like college is no big deal. I mean I am the first one in my family to go to college and sometimes I feel like I landed on the moon! This IS a big deal for me plus I dont want to let my family down. I think with a little help I can figure it out but right now I just feel like the only one who doesnt have it figured out yet”like I am playing catch-up.
