When getting close to graduating from college, the whirlwind of “what are you doing when you graduate?” type questions begin to surround you. With a little over 4 months left for myself, I have firmly decided that I am not pursuing grad school, either immediately or at all. But I don’t want to stop learning,…
It’s getting close to school starting again, and many first years are flocking to their orientations. Having worked with first year students for over 3 years now, I know quite a bit about the expectations and realities of first years. Here is what I see the most, and think everyone should know.
College is a stressful time for people, but also super fun and educational. But, college can be even more stressful and difficult when you have anxiety (or any mental health issue for that matter).
Usually “self” and “community” don’t exactly go together. However, when it comes to self care, having a community of support that understands the importance of self care and is willing to listen and help you makes the whole process more worthwhile. There is a particular community that comes to mind when discussing this topic.
The scariest part of college is graduating and what happens after, mostly because it is unknown and the “real world”. The sooner you start planning, the more secure you will hopefully feel. So this is how you prepare for your post grad life.
College can be a very difficult time for many students. Financial difficulty, mental health issues, and unforeseen circumstances can take a toll if you don’t take the time to care for yourself.
Now that I have officially entered my last year of college, the dreaded plague has loomed its head: senioritis. However, I don’t plan on succumbing to it, and here is how you can also stop senioritis.
It’s time to enter into a new semester for college students, and it’s important to start off fresh in order to feel prepared.
For those who may not know, I am pursuing a special major, which means that I created my own degree program with the help of the different departments involved. Sounds great right? Well, there are many misconceptions that come with pursuing a DIY degree.
Midterms may have just ended, but it’s never too early to start preparing for the real challenge: finals.
This semester is the official start of my senior year, and the last 3 semesters of college. The time has gone by so fast that there are many things that I haven’t done that I really want to do. Thus, the senior year bucket list was born.
It never hurts to do some reading before you start college or during to help you figure everything out. Blogs do this well, but there are also some great books out there that cover content clearly, so I am giving you three of my favorite.
