It’s graduation season folks! During my two years in college, I had the opportunity to fully immerse myself in the college experience. I worked on campus and joined several clubs and organizations, which allowed me to grow spiritually, academically, and emotionally while discovering who I truly am. Whether you graduate early, take four years, or become a super senior, your journey is special and uniquely yours, so embrace it!
AP and Dual Enroll
In high school, I was able to take over eight college classes, including AP and dual enrollment. Nowadays, there are even more course offerings for students, which means you can get many prerequisites completed before entering college. This will give you a head start and make your college experience smoother.
If you’re eager to get ahead, consider taking additional prerequisites during the summer. This will allow you to fill your college semesters with core classes for your major. I took all of my summer classes online, which gave me the flexibility to work and enjoy my summer break.
Plan your Semester
One of the most important things I learned during my time in college was to plan my semester. I didn’t wait for my advisor to tell me which classes to take. Instead, I took the initiative to research and plan my schedule accordingly. I realized that there were classes that fit better than others and even some that should have been counted on my audit but weren’t. Being on top of this saved me from taking an extra class that didn’t count towards anything. So, be proactive and plan your semester to make the most out of your college experience!
