My twitter, Instagram and Facebook is filled with people going back to University. I am just reminiscing my special moments from some of the best years of my life.
I truly believe that University is a great experience and a life changing one too. When I sit and think about life before and after University, the difference is amazing.
But I believe there are a few things you need make the most of the experience so here are my tips:
- Network, network, network. Speak to everyone and anyone. Everyone is in the same boat so a conversation can go a long way. One of my great friends at University was someone who I randomly started a conversation with.
- Get involved. University is filled with opportunities. So make the most of each one. I remember in my second year I was the President of a society, had a part time job, was volunteering in two places, was mentoring two first years and had a social life. So, honestly put yourself out there and say yes to opportunities.
- Explore. Whatever city, town or area you are in. Explore and see whats around you. It will be something fun to do and you will learn new things about the area that you will be living in for quite a while.
- Study. I mean this is the obvious one. But don’t forget to study. It’s very easy to miss a lecture and then two and then a whole week. Don’t let that happen and stay focused. At the end of the day you are paying for the education.
But most importantly HAVE FUN and discover who you are. It is an exciting time and I wish all the luck to everyone going to University. Make the most of it.
Honestly, I am really missing my University days so don’t let yours just pass you by.
