The college you have chosen for your career path, did it fit exactly as you hope for?

As a highschool senior this year and it's coming down almost to graduation,I really don't know what to expect out of a college. For example, is it going to help me with my future plans and better prepare me for the world with internships and more. #anyone

Sheila’s Answer

College prepares you for adulthood. You get to belong to a community of young adults and mature adults making decisions on your own, where to eat, what to eat, when to eat. You also have the opportunity to join organizations that create rules for all students. You grow up and experience life in a small community before facing the entire world at once.

In terms of the classes, you can dig deep into your subject matter and begin practicing in your field while in college. Get to know your professors and make contacts in that city to match the field you are pursuing. College is not needed for all tracks, however if you are able to attend, I think you should. In the learning environment be a go getter and demonstrate passion about your goals. For instance, Steven Spielberg wrote and filmed his 1st scary drama in college. Take advantage of all opportunities in college.

Paul’s Answer

What you get out of college will depend upon how much you give. The opportunities for growth, internships, counseling etc. will all be there but you have to take advantage of them. College will prepare you for the world as long as you're ready to put in the work. For example, internships are very competitive and if you don't have a high enough GPA you can't even apply.


I don't know what your future plans are but if you go into college ready to learn and take your courses seriously you will be fine.
