Away from home?

<p>Hello all!
I have some questions about the overall feeling of campus at AC. I was admitted, and I really want to attend, but I have some concerns due to my age- I am sixteen years old, will be turning seventeen in August, and I have already graduated from high school. I am confident about the academics, but less confident about leaving home. So my question is, does AC make it easy to adjust to college life? Is it easy to make friends and have a group of people that feel like a second family? What was your experience leaving home for college like?
Any advice appreciated! :)</p>
