In many cases, there are two major reasons why high school students choose to go away to college. One, of course, is for the degree. The other is for the experiences. College is said by many to be “the best four years of your life” and they aren’t wrong. For most young people, it’s the first time they are living alone while meeting tons of new friends from all walks of life. Whether this means attending clubs and activities on campus, joining a fraternity or sorority, or simply hanging out with friends in your dorm room, there are opportunities to be social at every corner you turn. Unfortunately, some students may have a hard time balancing this social life with the academic demands that come with being a college student. But, there are some tips to help you effectively manage it all.
