Unless you are going to spent a couple of grand on a camera I wouldn’t bother. You will be able to take a camera out from the college to do your course work. Of course other people will also want to take out cameras so you won’t always get one when you want.
When I went I did however have my own camera though it wasn’t until after first year I picked it up and was more to do with the fact the I do video work on the side than I needed it for college.
Best of luck
by the way first year sucks big time, once you get over that you’ll be fine!
