1. Make your IU experience your own.
Everyone’s college experience is different, so don’t be afraid to make yours what you want it to be. When I first started college, I joined nearly a dozen clubs and tried to make a huge group of friends because that’s what I thought I was supposed to do. Now, instead, I’m in just a few student organizations that I care deeply about and I have just a few very close friends. I’m so much happier now that I’m experiencing college exactly how I want to instead of how I feel like I should.
