Heading off to college is an emotional experience.
Will you make friends? Will you be able to cope with the workload? Will you be able to mix the partying with the studying?
And that's just the students.
Families suffer too as their once little ones leave to earn their educational stripes for the future.

Oh, the feels!
Best of luck guys.
