Every institution takes into account the difficulties of transition from high school to college. The majority of teachers and staff at every college has experienced a little of that “alone feeling” that overtakes a person who has left familiar surroundings, friends, and family. There are trained people in counseling centers at all large institutions to take care of those needing someone with whom to talk. Their existence is a gratifying relief to busy professors who are hired to be concerned mainly with academic-matters, such as explaining principles to students and improving the clarity of teaching, keeping abreast of their changing subjects by extensive reading, and preparing and grading quizzes and exams, not to mention engaging in research work.
You must take the initiative and make your appointment with a counselor as soon as you feel a need to discuss your personal problems, and not wait until things get extremely bad.
