Jennifer R. Lewis Freshman Seminar Assignment 0ne Do you love to party, cut loose, or have a good time? During high school, did you spend your four years having carefree fun? Well if so college is not the place for you.

I'm sure that we all heard the rumors about how college is just one big drunken orgy. But that's only half of the story. Along with the newly given freedom, serious responsibilities are in tow.

It will be a time in your life like no other. Here you will grow, make life long friends and discover things about yourself that you never knew.
