It’s been a while since I’ve been done with college now, and I need to talk about something today: getting a holistic college education. You may have read the word holistic before, it’s usually attached to something describing the college admissions process or health. I am here to talk about the term holistic as it relates to the college education you get.
You see, I was never one of those students who obsessed over my grades. I studied, I went to class, I worked hard, but I didn’t obsess. Besides doing all of the standard education things I also: joined a sorority, hung out with my friends, spent many a night hanging on to pizza and watching Netflix, etc. You see, I decided that grades weren’t the end all be all. I never did all-nighters for class, and I didn’t obsess over making every single paper pitch perfect.
Grades are important in college, but you shouldn’t focus on them so much that it harms other aspects of your life. Today I am chatting about creating a holistic college education so that you can create an education that matters in college and beyond.
Promoting your organization is essential. In the past, on The Happy Arkansan, we discussed five great ways to get your organization noticed on campus. I have a plethora of other ideas for getting your organization seen, so I wanted to share those today. You can use these ideas for a sorority, or any other campus group. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try these ideas out!

We are breaking down everything you need, how to avoid getting a fungus, and of course, how to avoid being that person in the bathroom.
