For all those little papers scattered across your desk

Survival Skills, University Edition

D. Ben Knoble on 12 Jan 2017 in Blog

I spent part of my Junior and most of my Senior year working with Lee Bierer, columnist and independent college counselor at CAS. After my first semester, she interviewed me about my experiences in college and published the results.

In the following two articles, I focus mostly on the academic and social challenges of my first semester at UNC Chapel Hill (Go Heels!). Probably the most important advice, though, is this:

Pick a place you’ll walk around smiling. That extra bit of happiness counts more than academics or social life. If you don’t enjoy looking at the campus for a day or two, you won’t enjoy it for four years.

You can find Part 1 here and Part 2 here. Later, the Raleigh News & Observer picked up the first article here.
