Cherishing Your Time as a College Student
Most of those who are reading this blog post are late-teen or 20-something college students, learning more about themselves and the world.
At this point, you may be feeling powerless. It could have something to do with the fact that most of us college students are still depending on our families. Maybe you’re starting to realize how big the world is, that you have to pick a major that will determine your success, or that college is so much harder than you thought it would be. All of these are things everyone feels at some point in their life, and that is totally OK.
The other night, a friend and I were talking about our purpose as college students. As we were discussing grades and the stress of classes, we realized how significant this time in our lives is. College is a time to learn and grow as much as possible — which is one of the greatest things about being in this stage of the journey.
We are allowed to learn and grow in ways that we were never able to before. We can try new things, go new places, and even make a few mistakes along the way. This could mean changing your major, going for that internship in a different state or country, or starting your own club or organization. In doing so, we’ll be able to grow significantly into the people we are meant to be.
The purpose of this little post is not to put pressure on anybody, or make classes seem unimportant, but to encourage every college student to take this time to live life to the absolute fullest.
Please share your thoughts on how students can best do that.
