Last week, I released a short video on advice as part of my If I Were series and shared advice on how college students, specifically first-year students can find their niche in college.
In Fall 2002 when I stepped foot onto Fairleigh Dickinson University Florham Campus I remember being so nervous.
My parents and grandfather had just finished moving me in and that was it, I was on my own. I knew no one (except for a small connection with Brett Mora, a fellow golfer).
I didn't really come out of my shell until my second semester and I even had doubts about even going back that next year.
It wasn't until my sophomore year that I started to put myself out there and get involved (marketing club, FPC, etc.).
I wish I had the advice and knowledge I have now but I also wouldn't change the way I spent my four years at FDU.
In light of it being the end of August and the class of 2021 headed to college, here is my latest episode of If I Were with 4 pieces of advice I wish I knew to find my niche in college.
The last part I turned the camera back on because I strongly believe it is a great time management concept that has resonated with other college students and you may find helpful or want to share.
To all of you post college, what other advice would you share to first years to help them find their niche?
Enjoy the video and if you think someone else needs to hear this, please share.
