Daily inspiration and advice for the ambitious savvy young professional

Back to School

This blog is written by Caitlyn our Campus Ambassador from the University of Louisville. Read on about what it takes to be a junior in college!

As a Junior, going back for fall classes is not quite as exciting as it was when you were a Freshman. As I have been walking around campus this past week I noticed that all of these kiddies are running around my campus, then I realize WOAH they’re freshman! How did it go by so fast? How on earth am I already a junior in college?
Although this realization came with the idea that my college life was halfway through it also got me thinking that it was time I made some changes! If you are anything like me you need some change in your daily routine to keep things interesting. So change we will indeed and I have brainstormed some ideas to switch things up!

  1. Join a new student organization. It is a great way to meet new people and you never know you could end up loving it and getting a position one day!
  2. Sit by people in class you normally wouldn’t. We all try to sit with our friends and if you don’t have friends in a certain class you sit by someone you could see yourself being friends with! If you switch it up you could make a new friend that you would never have met elsewhere, new friends from different groups of people are fun and definitely a change!
  3. Intramurals or workshops. This is a great way to get back into an activity that you used to do all the time, but on a less competitive level. I love playing volleyball intramurals because it is the only time I get to play and I used to play all the time. This is also a little way to sneak in a workout…the fun way!
  4. Get an internship!!! It is a great way to weed out what you love to do and what isn’t really your thing. Plus it is great for a resume and I made some of my closest friends through my internship! It is always a nice switch after being in a classroom all day to do some hands on work.

Honestly, this list could go on forever but since I got you started you can go on and finish it yourself! Just remember getting involved is a great way to change the norm! Plus, it is always a good thing to keep yourself busy, just don’t overload!
