They're back! Move in day was Saturday, and we love our college students! Here are some tips we wish we'd been told before freshmen year.
1. Venture off campus for food.
Calhoun County has tons of great restaurants that are affordable for the college budget. Break away from the typical chain restaurants we all know, and eat like a local. Then, you can impress your parents when they come visit!
2. Be a part of something.
Get involved with campus and community organizations because you never know the doors of opportunity that will be opened. Go out and make new friends!
3. Go to class
We know it sounds like your parents talking, but creating good relationships with your professors can actually come in handy one day. They have students in high places, and they can be great references.
Get outside! Fresh is great for you, and there is so much to do within an hour's time that is budget friendly. So, grab your roommate and check out area sites.
5. Check out other majors.
Take a variety of classes, and don't be afraid to change your mind more than one time. Find a career that you love, so you never really have to work a day in your life.
6. Show Team Spirit
Get involved in game days. Take advantage of the excitement and tailgates at football games and sporting events. It only adds to your experiences.
7. Try an internship
Want to add to your resume and make great contacts while you're still in school? Apply for student worker positions and search for community internships. It's a great way to try careers before graduation.
