A recent New York Times article polled college graduates and asked them what their most rewarding experiences in college were. Not surprisingly, these experiences did not include a great test grade or research article. They remembered extracurricular activities, like handling RA crisis and learning tour guide skills.
A majority of the college students enjoyed their time in college, no matter if it was a private, exclusive, or public college. As the author of the article surmised, this shows that most of the time, it doesn’t matter what school one attends, it matters how one takes advantage of the opportunities the school offers.
I may be over-involved on my campus, but I do not regret anything I have tried. Consider the advice of the college graduates. Take advantage of opportunities and you will have a rewarding college experience!
