19 Things To Do The Summer Before University:
University is a huge 4-year investment. This means that the summer before you head off to University has to be fun and productive to not only relax from your 4 year high-school-haul, but should also prepare you for the next 4-year-haul ahead. These are just a few things you can do to stay busy!
- Get an internship/ volunteer
Keep your work profile in mind. This will allow you to be able to land future internships or jobs which may give you advantage once you’re in the actual job market.
You will not only gain experience, it may even drive your passion towards or against certain professions and inform future career decisions (which you now have to think about!).
- Take time to plan what courses you are going to take for your first semester.
Make relevant plans with your intended course advisor (this may vary in difficulty depending how far you live from your University)
This will make your transition into college a lot easier and more seamless if you know exactly what you’re studying and why you are studying it. Be wary of the several pre-requisites, both of your university, of your college and intended major and make sure you’re fulfilling them!
