This is more common than you think. When I was entering college, I did not truly know what I wanted to study or even do after college.
My first piece of advice would be to connect with your college advisor (when you get one) and let him/her know what your passions are, which will then lead into creating goals for yourself in college. Your hobbies can possibly become a career for you so definitely keep an open mind in college.
My next piece of advice would be to get involved in three different types of clubs or organizations: A Social Club, like Greek life or a community service organization; an Academic Club, such as an honor society; and most importantly a Mental Stability Club, which might be something like yoga or hiking. Being involved in these three types of clubs or organizations are another way to help you find your passions and goals. Overall, college can seem scary at times because in your head, you feel like you are alone, but you have a bigger support system than you think. Take advantage of the opportunities to connect with professors and other staff members to help spark your passions and goals to help you find your future major or even career plans.
