“If I learned one thing this year, it is…”
One thing that I have learned this year is to take advantage of the vast amount of resources that colleges offer.
I learned that if you have an idea or passion you want to pursue (individual projects, internships, etc.), even if you don’t have the resources to do it, there are offices, departments and people on campus who can connect you to the right opportunities. But you have to be proactive – to do research, knock on doors, and irritate the right people. If you do irritate the right people for long enough, you can make things happen.
