What I Wish I'd Known About College

StudentsataCollege,University

Get involved with student organizations.


This isn't high school anymore, so there's no need to join every club under the sun to try to impress somebody. Figure out what you're passionate about, and then pursue it. Colleges have radio stations, political advocacy organizations, writers' groups, and so much more. They're a great way to meet people with similar interests, as well as to broaden your horizons. If your college lacks the group you'd like to join, go ahead and start it yourself!

Next: Pursue internships.
