The Best Way to Make Your College Experience Memorable

The Best Way to Make Your College Experience Memorable
  • Opening Intro -

    Some people remember college very well, but some people have little or no fond memories of their college experience.

    So what is the common denominator in all of this?

    The people we meet (or don't meet).

-------------------------------------

After college, what you’ll remember more than anything else is the relationships you’ve had there.

These relationships can encompass multiple facets of college life, including other students and even the professors.

In this article, I’m going to show you why and how you should be getting to know the people in your college life.

Meeting Students

Simple words of advice: meet everyone you can. Smile and be friendly. Start conversations (but not during class, that could be dangerous 😛 ). Go to places where people hang out and hang with them.

Many college alumni will tell you, after revisiting their old campus, that it feels different than before – that’s because all of their old friends aren’t there anymore. This highlights the fact that it’s the people you meet in college that makes your college experience special.

And, always remember, you might end up making friends with your future colleagues! Nowhere else except in college can you have this type of relationship at a young age.

Meeting Your Professors

Meeting your professors outside of class will benefit you in two important ways:

  • You’ll get more out of your learning experience.
  • You’ll have better memories after college.

How so you ask?

Because, first of all, I can almost guarantee that you’ll learn more from your professors if you have a personal relationship with them.

Just ask any person who did well in college and got good grades – ask them what comes to mind when they remember their class material. Most likely they’ll picture the faces of their professors, if they got to know them.

Your knowledge from college will come more from your professors than from your books.

Now, some practical advice: schedule appointments with your professors as soon as possible. Remember that your professors are people too, so respect their time. Keep in touch with them if you’re going to miss class and communicate clearly with them.

Closing Advice

Finally, I suggest you check out the movie Orange County. It’s about a high school senior who wants to get into Stanford because he read the writings of a professor there. When he finally got the chance to meet the professor, his whole perspective on things changed…

The people you meet in college will make up some of your best memories. Pluck up some courage and start up a few conversations. Do it now, and thank me later!
