Advice to be learned would be that college is what you make it. For someone to get the best experience out college one needs to learn, first and foremost, how to balance a social life with a responsible work ethic. From personal experience, the best way for a student to control his or her own experience would be to either obtain a position on the college?s student council board or just go to the meetings to voice an opinion. Finally, try not to allow the financial issues to run either a parent?s experience or the student?s. These days money needs to be sacrificed for a great education, but a great education is one of the best goals to have. College is what you make it; so with friends and family for support, make it the best experience you have and never hold back.
