Get In The Game

CatchingKnowing how to achieve success in college doesn't just mean knowing how to get good grades. On the other hand, "playing hard" doesn't just mean going to parties. You have to know how to keep yourself fulfilled both emotionally and creatively. Make sure that you have a healthy outlet for whatever creative juices are flowing inside of you — paint, keep a journal, join a fencing class — whatever! Just make sure it keeps you happy and gives you something to look forward to outside of academics.

Here are a few ideas to get you into the game!
