The way movies and TV make it seem, college is just one big party.

While Hollywood definitely exaggerates things, people do seem to misplace their moral compass as soon as they start college.

It’s important not to judge people for the decisions they make, but you also shouldn’t feel pressured to abandon your morals, too.

Here are some tips on how to resist peer pressure in college.

1. Talk to Your Parents
