For most incoming freshmen, college is the first time they will be living on their own without their family. This immediate rush of independence can be invigorating for many students, but it’s often hard to adjust to this sudden change.
This switch from constantly being surrounded by family members to being without anyone is usually a very difficult one to deal with, and it leads to many students either dropping out or moving back home and commuting to class.
In order to replace the family and friends from home, students need to surround themselves with other students, and one of the biggest ways to do that is by joining clubs/organizations.
