As my time as a college undergrad comes to a close, I’m finding myself reminiscing about these past four years. When they say that college goes by fast, they’re not kidding. As I sit here writing this to avoid actually studying for finals, I have some final thoughts that I’d like to share about my days in college that will [hopefully] help y’all in your future endeavors.
- Go Greek! I’m not being dramatic when I say that this is the best thing that ever happened to me. Greek life has made me a leader that I never thought I could be, and has given me friends that will be there for the rest of my life.
- Get involved. Because I got involved, I got a second chance at pursuing my passion for dance.
- When will I ever learn to not procrastinate? Don’t be like me and create a habit of procrastinating early on in your college career.
- If you need help, ask for it. I’m still having a hard time learning this.
- I’m almost 22 and still wondering where my Hogwarts acceptance letter is. It probably got lost in the mail or something. What I’m trying to say is never give up hope that something great is coming.
- It’s okay to go through tough times and lose yourself, college is the time to make mistakes and learn from them.
- Always work to make today better than tomorrow in all aspects.
- Work hard and keep striving no matter how hard things get.
- Dance parties are necessary at all times of the day.
- Be careful who you trust, not everyone wants to be your friend.
- Get to know your professors.
- Get an internship – or 3 – you can only learn so much in the classroom. Real world experience in the workforce will teach you so much more.
- Be kind, you never know what someone is going through.
While I could probably write a novel about all of the things I’ve learned in college, this is all I’ve got for now.
Take care of yourselves and good luck on finals!
