How to make the most of your college experience

Many people consider college to be the best time of their lives, and for a good reason. For most, it is the first time they are on their own without adult supervision, but still young enough to have minimal responsibilities. It is a time to explore what topics you are the most interested in and find out the kind of person you want to be. Taking advantage of the many opportunities available to you as a college student is important for making the most of your college experience.

On most college campuses, there is an activity, organization or event for everyone. To make the most of your college years, get involved on campus. Getting involved is a great way to meet professors, network and find out what interests you.

Make friends at every opportunity - Room with someone you don't know, study with different groups of people, grab lunch with the girl from your class, join a Greek organization or an honors society, attend sporting events or go with the kids from your dorm for a late night food run. Take advantage of every moment to make new friends as the relationship you make in college are often the longest-lasting and strongest.

Finally, study what makes you happy, get to know your professors and sign up for internships. College is about finding what you want to make a career out of. If along the way you find that you like something other than what you expected, don't be afraid to change majors! Four years fly by at the blink of an eye and no one wants to graduate regretting that which they did or did not do.
