Stagione 1

1x1 - A scuola di vita

At her high school graduation, Felicity Porter works up the nerve to ask Ben Covington, her longtime crush, to sign her yearbook. On a whim, she decides to follow him to college in New York City, abandoning long-established plans to study medicine at Stanford. Her parents try to convince her that she is making a huge mistake, and refuse to provide her with financial support. Felicity moves into the dorm and (eventually) meets roommate Meghan, a standoffish girl with a decidedly alternative lifestyle. Her resident advisor, Noel, is much friendlier; he quickly develops romantic feelings for her. Felicity befriends Julie, an aspiring guitar player; and confesses her reasons for coming to New York to Ben. He is flattered, but understandably frightened. Felicity tells him that she has realized how strange her behavior is, and just wants to be friends. Hoping to learn more about Ben and get closer to him, she uses her job at the university's records office to read Ben's application essay.

Felicity receives word that someone has requested a copy of her application essay. She believes the interested party is Ben (the topic of the composition), so she sends him a copy.

They requested the essay in the hopes of figuring out what she was thinking. Noel suggests that Felicity have them visit the dorm to see how she lives, but things don't go well. Felicity explains that she initially came to New York for Ben, but now sees the experience as an opportunity to break away and make her own life. Her mother is hurt, and Felicity fears that their relationship will never be the same. However, Mrs. Porter later comes to see Felicity and explains that she is just afraid of seeing her repeat her mistakes (by becoming too serious about a boy too quickly). The Porters eventually agree to accept Felicity's decision, and Dr. Porter insists on paying for her tu
