Sandra’s Answer

To make the most out of your college experience, I recommend focusing on making new friends during the first week of school. Befriend your roommate (if you have one), anyone in your building/hall/dorm. Become friends with people in your class. Depending on when you start college, you will most likely encounter students with the same energy and willingness to meet new people - remember that you are all most likely in the same boat! Join any activities/clubs/organizations that will help you make friends.

It's imperative to make friends in college so you can learn what classes to take, navigate through college in general, get any help on coursework and down the road have networking opportunities- not to mention all the fun memories you make during your college years. Embrace it!

Hi Tony! Well college is definitely an experience in being able to find yourself and your passion for your future. When you go to college make sure to take classes you enjoy as well as ones that prepare you for your future. It is also important to make good friends, stay organized and be productive. Your hashtag states athletic training, therefore if you are in athletics it is important to be time committed and make sure your grades don't slip! Remember to reach out to your professors, get extra tutoring if needed (it's part of your tuition on campus- just ask your adviser or the student academic center), as well as be balanced and eat well! Lastly, enjoy as well by finding good friends and staying active; remember to relax and find time for things you love as well! Also keep in touch with your loved ones, they might miss you when you are in college!

Best of luck!

If you're not sure about your major, but like being a physical training, I'd go ahead and start with physical training being your major. You can spend time figuring out if it's the right major for you. If you want other ideas, you could check out the department of labor's website to see what some of the fastest growing fields are.

Explore!! Whether it's making new friends, taking classes you never thought you'd take, or trying out new clubs/experiences, college is really the time to get out of your comfort zone because once you graduate, you might not get the same opportunities or the same chances elsewhere. Good luck!

I see that you tagged athletic training. If you are planning to attend college for AT you have to realize you will have a slightly different college experience than some of your friends. Athletic training is very time consuming from day to day and can be very stressful at times. This is why you need to take time for yourself. I know this is going to sound crazy but sometimes you just have to put the books and study guides down and go have fun. This it the time to learn work-life balance for your future. I'm NOT saying go crazy and avoid homework and assignments, but you have to relieve stress every once and a while. Another helpful tip is to find other interests you enjoy. Clubs around campus can help you find friends, hobbies, and ways to express yourself outside of taping ankles and filling coolers. I hope this helps!
