Some days we feel like we are on top of the world, and other times we are desperate for an answer. More often than not, the answers we are looking for are closer than we think. Here’s some advice from college students to other college students that you should know.
“Don’t worry if you don’t find your best friends right away, even if you feel like everyone else is.” – Kate, class of ’16
“Grades don’t matter. Internships do.” – Randy, class of ’15
“Don’t wear your high school letter man jacket.” – Molly, class of ’18
“Learn how to budget your time. Don’t spend so much time studying you miss out on all the great times and friendships at college. Also, don’t spend so much time ‘experiencing’ college life that you don’t get your work done.” – Bill, class of ’86
“The work never ends; college does.” – Cait, class of ’16
“Always keep your door open, and don’t transfer the second you feel homesick. Give it some time. Also, be prepared to live with and meet people who are very different than you are. One of the things I’ve learned the most in college is understanding people are different than me or what I am used to. You have to keep an open mind and you will find the right group of friends who love you for you.” – Jessica, class of ’16
