Are you about to start university? Are you in the middle of your studies? Are you a recent grad with tips to share?
This is your thread to talk to each other. Anxieties? Things you are most excited about? Tips on self care? Figuring out how to live away from home and deal with roommates? Study skillz? Academics? Time management? Mental health stuff? Sex, drugs, rock’n'roll? The thread is yours.
- I’d like to prioritize the voices of people who are undergraduate students now.
- If your college/university experience is still fresh, as in, within the last 3 years, chime in. What do you know now that you wish you’d known when you were just starting out?
- If you work at a college or university – professor, student affairs person, counselor, etc. (I think we have MANY in this community), also chime in.
- If your advice comes from “10-20 years ago, when was just starting college….” maybe it’s not your thread. I say this as someone who started college 20 years ago and as someone who teaches Freshpeople: Stuff has really, really changed.
