    This was so insightful and I really enjoyed reading your advice and personal experiences! I’ll be heading off to college soon so these tips will definitely be on my mind…especially when it comes to branching out and challenging my comfort zone!

    Great post! As a rising sophomore, I definitely resonated with these tips. I actually just put up a post on my blog called Things I Wish I’d Known Before Starting My Freshman Year, so feel free to check that out!

    Very inspiring post! My personal favorite was your “branching out” section. I find myself getting stuck in a rut in the same hustle and bustle of work, class, study, repeat. It’s important to strive to meet your goals and work hard to do so, but it is also important to branch out and make new friends and welcome new opportunities with open arms. That’s what college is all about: finding yourself.

    I also agree that taking extra courses that particularly interest you and really don’t go toward one set major is important. I am living proof that majors change. Multiple times… It’s caused me to be behind my graduating class, but that’s alright. At least I am finding out my own way what I really want to do with my life and where I do not want to be.

    Again, great insights Chelsea! I look forward to checking out more of your blog.

    I wish I would have studied abroad too! At the time I didn’t even know my college offered that…I had one of the worst advisers ever. It’s my one regret also and if I could go back that is the one thing I would do.
