College is about closing of one chapter of your life, and beginning of another. It's a time of expanding and growing into adulthood. There is a lot of focus on higher education aspects of attending college, and it's really much more than that.
College is a time to get to know who you are, and what you may want to do in your life. College gives you an opportunity to spread your wings, and learn about things which serve and support you in a "safe" environment. College is a time to network, and relationship with other people.
Some of most important questions you can ask yourself is What do I like? What am I interested in? What subject do I lose myself in? There will be some required courses and those may not jazz you, but your major should be something that fits like a glove. If you are unsure, don't commit to any one course of direction until you have determined that. There is an abundance of college options, so take your time in choosing one that best suits your needs. It will save you a lot of time and money and aggravation, in long run!
