Finally, fellowship with others
Whether you and your dorm mates put together resources and potluck regularly or your church offers pre-bible study and post-service meals, take advantage and build connections with others. Got family in the area? Seek them out and ask if you can stop by for dinner some time. Having a connection with your distant great aunt can be especially useful during the holidays if you decide to stick close to campus instead of traveling to your hometown. You’re guaranteed to get fed, plus food is best enjoyed with people you know.
