The first day jitters are normal so don’t worry, everyone gets them. You won’t be thrown in a trash bin or get your lunch tray dumped on your head, but here are some things you should think about it. Everyone here has been a freshman just like you are right now. You will learn the ways of highschool. They aren’t too hard to understand. I’m sure you’ll have the hang of it by next semester, but just to give you a head start, we decided to ask the grownups in the building what they think freshman should do. High school is said to be the best four years of your life, but what they don’t tell is the unspoken rules. Don’t worry, we got them for you.
