    Hey folks
    All of summer I have been super hyped about the new college I'm joining. It's an art college and I love art so I know I will have an amazing time there, I have literally been wanting to go back to school the past 2 weeks. However I am going there tomorrow for my first day and now I'm really ****ting myself, I know it sounds petty coming from someone of my age but I'm genuinely scared of going to college tomorrow. I think the fear mostly comes for not knowing what to expect, I've been to the same school since I was 7, over half my life, so I'm very inexperienced as to what to expect on the first day of a new school. The other issue is I don't know anyone who is going to this new college. What I'm asking is what to expect tomorrow. I keep thinking I'm gonna go in, everyone will have their cliques and I'm gonna be sitting alone at lunch. I'm generally a confident guy but I don't know how to I'm gonna approach people on the first day. I just really dont wanna be left out tomorrow. Can anyone give me some good advice on waht to expect and any tips? Also a big issue is what to wear, I am clueless, I'm thinking on just wearing something plain and neutral but at the same time I'm a very creative and quirky person and I would quite like to come across as being like that and wearing my arty clothes. Any help whatsoever on the topic of going to a new school/college would be hugely appreciated.
    Thank you so much everyone

    Just do it! You'll be fine, you will make friends, just start with casual talk like introducing yourself and asking what subjects they take, what music they like etc... If you want to wear your arty clothes then go for it, show them your creativity!

    It'll be fine You'll make new friends in your classes as not everyone will be placed in classes with pre existing friends and people do change friends when they go to college. Just don't be afraid to get involved with people in your classes, I started sixth form college last year and knew absolutely no one, the first day was daunting but it was absolutely fine, you'll soon find people you get along with. It's highly likely that most people will also be nervous. As to what to wear, I wouldn't fuss too much most people either don't care or don't notice, so wear something you like and feel comfortable wearing (be as plain or adventurous as you like). Most people I know just go in a t-shirt and jeans each day.
