When I was in college, one of my favorite parts of back to school was shopping for new clothes.

I know you will love the adorable outfits I picked.

When I started my college journey, it felt a little slow, and I couldn’t seem to figure out my life. Through time my college years flew by, and the next thing I knew, I was walking across the stage at commencement. Once I got my hands on my diploma, it finally hit me that I’ve closed another chapter in my life.
I’m happy to share that my degree in communication has taught me so much about myself and my career. I have utilized my communication skills in so many ways since I’ve graduated from college. I think it would be fantastic if more people were comm majors because it’s a valuable skill to have in every industry. So today, I’m sharing five tips for anyone interested in having a degree in communication.
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!
