Seawolves Speak: What are you afraid for this semester?

The fall of 2018 has brought Sonoma State Univeristy a brand new class of freshman, all of whom are leaving the nest for the first time as they dive into the next step of their lives. As young fledgelings not yet privy to the ways and ideals of a college student, these first-years undoubtedly carry with them certain anxieties and worries that a seasoned Sonoma State student might have forgotten. The STAR decided to ask a small fraction of the new freshmen what worries them most about the upcoming semester, and found that the answers vary from person to person. However, we also should recognize that a question like this will draw answers which reflect the fears and concerns of not just a brand new student, but of a person who is leaving their comfort zone for the first time.
