I been looking into the Orthodox Church for a while and now that I just started college I would like to start going to a Orthodox Church, and I have a few questions.
1. The nearest church is 60 miles from me (about an hour) and my parents and some friends don't get why a person would drive 60 miles to attend a church, so is it weird for me to drive that far?
It's not weird. You may have to consider the state of your car, money available for gas, etc., but on its own it is not weird to drive that far. Many people regularly travel quite a distance to get to church every week.
2. If I do attend should I call the priest before I come or should I just talk to him after the liturgy?
I would recommend doing so, though it is not required. When I was in college, I would "just show up" at a parish only to realise that schedules changed, or the priest was out of town and there was no replacement so the weekday service was cancelled, etc. I didn't have that far to drive, but sixty miles one way is another story. Usually priests are able to spot newcomers and welcome them personally, but they'll look out for you if they spoke to you and are expecting you. Not obligatory, but nice for a few reasons.
3. Is there anything I should know or any advice before going?
Other than "keep an open mind", I'd recommend "relaxing". Don't stress out if you can't follow what's going on, if it doesn't make sense, etc. Just take it all in, note the questions you have, and work on it from there.
