This is a guest post from our campus ambassador Katie Woloshin from James Madison University.
College is a time for exploration, for self-discovery, a time to prepare for the real world, and overall a time for new experiences. However, it can be a hard finding a place to start on these new life ventures. Need some guidance on how to get un-stuck in college? How about some inspirations to escape from your routine you’ve fallen into at your university? Here are some helpful ideas that can lead you in the right direction.
- Try the Career and Academic Planning Office: This office can assist you in finding an internship, picking classes that coincide with your major, finding clubs, resume help, and just about anything else you can think of. They are trained to know the in’s and out’s of your school and can definitely lead you to your next move.
- If you do not have this office, talk to your assigned advisor. This person is given to you as your best resource on campus. Talk openly to her or him about what you see yourself doing in the future and how this university help you get there.
- Befriend your advisor, as this person is one of your guides on campus, they will want to do anything they can to help you reach your goals and find new and exciting ventures.
- Go to Student organization night. One night a semester, all of the student led organizations get together and share what they have to offer. You can get great information about each organization and even sign up for their mailing list. This can help you branch out and find any piece of information about clubs your heart could desire.
Good luck on your new adventures. Your future awaits you!
