As you pack up your supplies to embark on your college adventure DO plan to put your studies first, but also be intentional about making time for people. College is full of optional opportunities outside of the classroom that you must seek out.
Keep your grades up, but don’t study so much that you neglect the wealth of resources available to you through friendships and face-to-face interactions. Ask any graduate what they considered to be the best part of college and the answer will 9 times out of 10 involve people they met there. Your time in college will fly by faster than you can imagine. Don’t miss out on the best that it has to offer.
