Sophia’s Answer

Hi, I graduated college in May of 2020 (from a large public research university). Obviously every university is different, but I can share a few things about "life" at my university. For the majority of my college experience, I attended in person classes, worked part-time, participated in organizations (music, Greek life), met tons of people from all over the country, and studied abroad. I was not an athlete, but I know that will definitely impact what life is like for you as you will have 2 major commitments (sports and academics) where most people will have just academics (or work and academics). Furthermore, I enjoyed living on campus in dorms and off campus close by with friends. Whether you plan to commute or live on campus will also influence your experience. However, the end of my college experience was extremely different due to the pandemic. I think "life" is quite different now for many universities as there are no longer many in person classes, its harder to meet new people, and organizations have had to move online (if possible). Regardless, I hope you enjoy your college experience in whatever form it comes in!

Ned C. K.’s Answer

Hi Willie,

In addition to Sophia's great answer I'll add my two cents. Firstly, congratulations on your scholarship and it is great that you are thinking now about what the future will be like as a college student. Pro tip, continue to plan ahead of time for all aspects of your life.

Now I'll jump to my cliché answer, life on a college campus will be, like everything else in life, what you make of it. It will not be like anything you've seen in a movie, at least in my experiences, as I've gone to several schools throughout my life as I've continued to develop my knowledge and career.

I'll leave you with some unsolicited advice, sit down and write out, yes write out, your goals that you'd like to accomplish during/at the end of college. Examples may be things such as graduate with a specific GPA, reach a specific milestone within your athletic career, etc. I like the SMART goal method as I find this helpful but just be sure to follow a method. I grabbed this link for your convenience https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/smart-goals.htm

The point is, just make sure your goals are clear, achievable, and you can document each of the S.M.A.R.T. aspects for each goal. This will allow you to set yourself up for success.

Specific (simple, sensible, significant).
Measurable (meaningful, motivating).
Achievable (agreed, attainable).
Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based).
Time bound (time-based, time limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive)

Good luck with your endeavors!
