This is because I learned that the library was the fortress of american knowledge, where I could learn just about anything in life about history, humanities, art, psychology, science and education.
I always met the most interesting and fascinating people in the library and it was a place where I discovered a diversity of experiences. Plus, I learned how to utilize resources, which helped in my future careers.
My favorite thing about school was being able to make my own decisions on what I wanted to learn and also joining social clubs!
While I took classes for my major, I was able to also take electives that were interesting to me and learn things outside of my major.
Social clubs provided a sort of break from the monotony of school work and helped especially in making new friends in different majors. To this day, I still keep in touch with many of those I had met in the social club I was in. It also helped me to explore the city I was in (as I had moved to go to school).
One of my favorite things to do in school is to meet as many new people as possible. It is easy to focus on only interacting with people in your classes/grade, but there are so many people on a school's campus that have complex life stories who would be happy to share with you! You can always learn from other people's experiences and make new friends just by talking to new people :)
Going away to school gives you sooo many opportunities to meet new people. My favorite thing to do at school is (as cliché as it sounds) is to hang out with my friends! I alway recommend joining clubs and being involved with your school. Always take opportunities because most of the time they aren’t offered again.
Following that, make sure you are involved and in-tune with your classes. The more you pay attention and more involved you are, they are more enjoyable!
Aaron recommends the following next steps:
I like the university I currently attend because I am taking virtual classes. When I first graduated from high school I tried going to Eastern Michigan University but after one full year of school I decided that college was not for me at the time. I took some time off then returned when I was ready at a pace that I was comfortable with. The whole in-person experience just was not for me but now that I am doing virtual school I like it a lot more. So to answer your question my favorite thing to do in school would have to be attending the virtual seminars. They allow me time to ask the professor any questions I may have on assignments for the week and also interact with my classmates.
