    Hi, guys,

    I am off to college and I am... unhappy, to say the least. I failed in that pretty much all the colleges I applied to rejected me, and now I'm off to a college I hate. I feel cheated out of my accomplishments or something and I just don't click with this college. What's worse is that the reason why I'm going to a college I hate is because my parents are forcing me to.

    With all this in mind, I am feeling pretty down. There are only two things I can think of as being positive at college: I can have my own room that I can customize and my dorm-mate is nice. Other than these things, thinking about college makes me sick. I feel ill when others try talking about it with me or acting like it's a great thing. My graduation party left me in tears because no one really gets (or cares) that I'm so unhappy. It felt like the party was for my family vs. me, since they are happier about college than I am.

    I just hate it. I hate thinking about it and I hate talking about it. I'm ashamed and unhappy and feel like I'm a failure.

    How can I grow to love my college--or at least be somewhat happy about it--before going? As it stands, I strongly feel like I'm going to have a miserable and anxious time and that I'll eventually never finish college.

    Try and go in with an open mind- it might be that once you get there, it turns out better than you think! There may well be clubs/societies there you can do to get to know people with similar interests, you already know your roommate who is nice and it's possible you can find people outside college too. If the worst comes to the worst, you can change after AS year and redo it. But give it your best shot and hopefully things will work out for you
