Student Resources on Campus
College is one of the most formative periods in the lives of young adults looking for an education. For them, the four years they spend learning and developing their academic abilities presents a time of self-discovery and self-exploration. College life helps in learning your strengths and weaknesses in a way that simply isn’t possible in high school. But the discoveries they will be making won’t purely be academic in nature. There’s a lot to learn, even outside the classroom. With added flexibility in time, access to more College Campus Resources, and an ability to manage one’s own schedule makes life on a college campus, in a sense, the first taste of autonomy. It’s particularly because this is such a formative period in a student’s life that it’s important to have those extra-curricular pursuits.
Every college offers unique ways for students to explore their interests—whether that be through activities outside the school or by providing recreational areas on campus. It’s hard to find two college experiences that are exactly alike and offer the same advantages. But by simply creating areas for students to thrive in, colleges help students on the road to personal development.
