Nothing is as essential to a successful college career as building communicative relationships with administrators and professors. Working hard is expected, but when professionals in positions of power are working hard on your behalf, it is impossible to fail. Build a network that can assist you when it comes time to apply for graduate school or secure recommendations for a job.
Cherish the Experience
Undergrad was definitively the shortest time in my life. It zoomed past. I can still remember moving into my first dorm. Cherish the experience. Make friends. Lose friends. Succeed. Fail. Figure out your next steps. Evolve. Make the experience worthwhile.
