When I entered college and went through growing pains, I realized I was in store for some new challenges for which I had never been forewarned. My parents encouraged my academic success through high-school into college, but never bothered to prepare me for the rigors of college life and academics.
There is a big difference in college between knowing you "what" you need to do and knowing "how" to do it. Unfortunately many college professors (sometimes by reason of being in the trenches of academia too long) are not always so helpful in that regard. Plus it is often hard to find someone as a college student who you can refer to who also has some intelligence who can guide and counsel you.
