College & Career Challenge:
College has more to offer than just going to classes and studying. Each college has different resources for your academic, social, health, technology needs, and more. They also have a variety of groups and organizations based on interest, ethnic backgrounds, lifestyles, majors, and even future careers. For this week’s challenge you need to go to your desired school’s website and look for three resources you think you will use during your college journey and three organizations that you think you would be interested in joining. Take note of how you found them on the website. Here is an example of ECU’s student resources page.
