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.
