Nancy’s Answer

Layten, it is great you are thinking about maximizing the college experience. Besides coursework, college often offers clubs, new social opportunities, research assistant positions, internships, volunteer opportunities and sometimes part-time jobs. Do your research, keep your ears open and try out new things to build your resume and discover talents and interests. The career center, department office of your major, and student services offices are places to check out for resources and referrals. Don't forget your advisor! These resources will help you maximize what you are learning by helping you find activities and work experiences you can use to help you plan your future.

Tiara Tiema,’s Answer

I would become a member of organizations or clubs that are of interest to you, along with finding an internship that you could see yourself doing in your future. Besides getting good grades in school, make sure you take advantage of opportunities to meet new people, explore new interesting information and even consider studying abroad! Each of these things along with many others can help you to really maximize your time in school. Best of luck!

Amy’s Answer

I agree with previous comments and also recommend that you get involved! Joining clubs and organizations is a great way to feel connected to the campus, build relationships, and gain experiences that will translate to getting a job. Think about ways to be a leader - employers are looking for leadership experience! Also, learn as much as you can in every single class - you never know what knowledge may come in handy when networking and interviewing for jobs. Get to know your professors, too. This will enrich your educational experience and may result in solid letters of recommendation. Best of luck to you!

Seth Daniel’s Answer

Of all the great advice others have given about this question, the one I would emphasize would be procuring internships in organizations that are a lot like ones you'd like to work in. That could be based on the field they are in, their culture, community relationships or other factors important to you. internships
