All this has been very negative.
The study cards, "due or else"; the meetings in the Union, with their streams of advice and of traditional Harvard professorial humor; the coming attempts to draft Freshmen into various extra-curricular activities--these cannot be treated negatively by the men involved. Seriously speaking, then, the problem boils down--after the first, short-lived confusion--to this: how best can a balance be obtained between the academic and the social in a college career? For most Freshmen, academics will be a hard grind from now until after midyear examinations, next February.
Family, faculty advisors, and upperclassmen friends all say "Make a good impression. Work hard now if you never do again. Most Freshmen, in other words, are too conscientious. Of course, we would be the last--at least among the last--to suggest a policy of loafing, of laissez faire.

The Freshman year is without any doubt the hardest of the four, when measured against the experience of the students involved. There will be work, and plenty of it; but the greatest danger is not the work, but the worry arising from it. More Freshmen fail because of fear than because of inability or laziness.
That is a categorical statement, but true. And the remedy for fear is the knowledge that for every confused Freshman, others are in the same boat; also, that teachers--in the courses especially designed for first year men--realize perfectly well that their minions are new at the game, and have set their standards accordingly.
