Anna’s Answer

Consider exploring programs centered around academic subjects to determine if the courses spark your enthusiasm and inspire you to learn more. Refrain from rushing through college just to graduate quickly. Pursuing a field that doesn't interest you or becomes tedious can make studying and graduating quite challenging.

Mark’s Answer

Depends on what your career goals are. If you are not clear on that first then college will either be pointless or much more difficult than what it needs to be. If you are not clear on your career goals, seek out professionals in fields you are interested and find out what they did. If you are looking at colleges now, they likely have a career services department whose role is to help students determine their career goals. Try meeting with one of their professionals.

Martha’s Answer

The first thing I would say is use all the advising services available to you. There often are general advisors as well as advisors in your major or potential majors who could help you choose courses so you can fulfill the requirements within 4 years (or sometimes fewer years). Some colleges offer 5-year programs for combined bachelor and master's programs; your advisor could direct you.

Also, use the writing centers and tutoring services if you need help with a course or assignment. There is no shame in using the resources available to everyone. By using these services, you will learn new skills and knowledge and make your college experience more enjoyable and fulfilling.
Good luck!

Mercedes’s Answer

You don't want to take too many classes that you burn yourself out or aren't successful. Definitely look at internships as soon as you can. Try not to wait until your final year to apply for an internship. Another thing I would suggest is practicing soft skills - such as being a confident speaker, leadership, and communication. Many of these can be obtained through joining clubs or professional organizations.
