What I Wish I Knew Before Starting College Advice College Grads Hope Someone Had Told Them Sooner
For many students, starting college is their first time living on their own and making their own decisions. It’s a unique time and setting to learn and grow as independent adults, and it can be incredibly gratifying to come out the other end with a degree and a new set of life skills. Sometimes, though, a little guidance can be helpful — take it from people who learned the hard way. We asked a group of professionals from different academic backgrounds what they wish someone had told them before they started college and gathered a bit of advice from counselor and former dean of students at Eastern University, Daryl Hawkins, to better prepare incoming students for college.
