How to Find Your Path in College

If you are of college age, then you’ve probably been asked the following questions TONS of times. “What’s your major?” “What are you going to do with that degree?” “What’s your career path?”. And if you are like me, for a while, you didn’t know a good answer.

I began college as an education major, but I realized by the Spring semester that my heart loved something else. To preface all of this-it’s completely okay to enter college undecided as to what you want to major in, or what you want to do with your life. Heck, if you really wanted to, you could be undecided for quite some time and still be on track to graduate. By junior year you should have an idea, unless you want to spend more time in school.

So, whether we like it or not, you’ll eventually need to find your path in college. It’s hard. It’s frustration. It’s a loaded question full of pressure and stress-but it doesn’t have to be!

When you’re an intern, you have two choices – you can skate through the summer just counting the hours until you can hit the beach after work and counting the days until you can go back to school, or you can make the most of your summer internship and set yourself up for success long before graduation.

5 Ways to Never Miss an Assignment Again

Between freshman and sophomore year in college, there were always assignments that slipped my mind. Some didn’t make it into my planner. Others never made it out of the depths of the paper graveyard that I carried around in my over-packed messenger bag.

But, by the end of my sophomore year I decided that enough was enough. Too many easy A’s were being missed because of my lack of planning. So I did what every college student should do when faced with a problem, I asked for help. After working with an academic success coach, I was able to stay on top of EVERY assignment, stay organized throughout the semester and actually have some breathing time between classes instead of running to the crowed computer lab in an effort to force 1,000 words into a document to get 5 points of extra-credit.
