Once you’re finally at UNH and have your daily regimen down, your days will get busy enough that you totally forget what life was like at home. Being in college, you adapt to a totally new schedule; classes are different, what you do with your spare time is totally up to you, you’ll hang out with totally different people, and basically everything is within your control. You can eat whenever you want, go where you please, stay out late, and you respond to no one but yourself. So essentially it’s the opposite of your life in high school.
Though I love attending college at UNH, going home was the best vacation. You don’t realize until you finally leave and have time to do nothing, just how much you were doing in college. Always studying, doing homework, meeting up in the library, ect. Suddenly you aren’t trying to figure out if you should get lunch after Biology lecture, or before. I didn’t realize how much I loved being home until college. No, I’m not saying college at UNH is so hard that I had no time to relax, instead I was hard at work making friends and adapting to a totally new life style.
Being home for the holiday’s is a treat – the dining hall is downstairs in the kitchen, you don’t need to wear flip-flops in the shower, and best of all is you have your car to go where ever you’d like. College gives you a new found appreciation for being home, especially at the holidays so you can be around family. Most of classes didn’t really assign any homework, knowing full-well that the students need the vacation. Being home for the holiday’s is a time when UNH students can go home and relax, spend time with their family, and not have to worry about school.
