What Do You Know Now That You Wish You Knew in College?

Lifehacker has a quick, fun read here on the top ten things people wished they had known while in college. I summarize them here; the comments on the original post are worth a read.

1. Go to class.

2. Go to office hours.

3. Do internships.

4. Learn job-relevant skills.

5. Go for the free money.

6. Avoid debt.

7. It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

8. Don’t be in a rush to get out early.

9. Get involved with a sport, club, frat, political org, ANYTHING.

10. Study abroad.
