Distractions. It’s hard to avoid them in college – from the countless campus events to the neverending emails from professors and clubs, it is easy to be swept away in the bombardment of new information and new opportunities coming your way.
Whether you’re ready to hear it or not, unfortunately your time in college is not going to last forever. If I could go back in time and do my entire undergrad all over again, the only thing I’d consider changing is the effort I put into building up my resume during my freshman and sophomore years of college.
Despite the fact that I can hardly believe it is 2023, it’s time to begin making some New Year’s and new semester resolutions, to make 2023 the best year (and spring semester) yet. In this chapter, I’m going to be talking about the importance of setting realistic academic and wellness goals in order to reach your maximum potential while in college. The New Year is always a wonderful time, because we all get the chance to start fresh on the electrifying feeling of the unknown year ahead.
One of the most important keys to your success in college is the ability to maintain personal mental and physical health while away at university – especially as you become submerged in your new classes, adjust to your new schedule, and adapt to your new eating options.
Whether you have declared your major or not, as a college student you have acquired the unique freedom to choose which courses you’d like to take to advance your higher education, free electives that you wouldn’t have had the chance to take while in high school such as Scuba Diving Training can diversify one’s education.
For many students, the process of deciding whether to take a gap year or not can be extremely difficult, will take months of research and planning, and sadly, the answer they’re looking for is not going to simply appear overnight.
