Don't give up! In the end, all knowledge is valid, and you will come out stronger with lots of new skills.
Also, try to find a life purpose during college – if you don’t already have one – since it will keep you motivated and focused. Purposes can change throughout life (which is totally normal!) but having a concrete goal can help you during your studies.
What I wish I knew before starting university:
I wish I knew that there would be lots of challenges, but that I would be able to overcome them and experience lots of new things. That said, I still had a lot to learn when I got my first job! College is just a step that teaches you to solve problems, no matter which courses you take.
I wish I knew that it would be the best years of my life, that I would meet the most amazing people and have time to enjoy so many activities.
