We’ve all been there, first week at a new school. To prepare our incoming first-years we’ve compiled a little cheat sheet so you know exactly what to expect.

1. Parents just left. FREEEEEEDOM!

2. Roommate? You mean best friend?

3. This year I’ll be a 4.0 student!

4. I can do anything or be anyone here!

5. Oh he’s cute…. say something say something say something

6. Wait who am I supposed to have dinner with?

7. More first-years! I am one of you!

8. Wait. Harstad is just a building full of girls?

9. And all this food…. is free?

10. I think I’m going to like it here.
