Once you get to university, talking to an advisor might not be at the top of your list. Maybe you’ve spent some time getting to know your major and the coursework it entails, and you know exactly what you’re going to do. That’s great! However, a major resource that can often be overlooked at university is the resource that comes with connecting with an advisor who understands your goals and guides you to achieve them.
Unhealthy habits can easily develop in college, and many times, they’re almost seen as a given, a rite, or something that is an inevitable part of college life. Perhaps you’ve even dealt with it in high school; hearing how little someone slept last night and comparing your own two hours, skipping breakfast, signing up for way too many extracurriculars, and overall, completely draining yourself. For many of us, this comes easy, and we’re used to these habits, to the point where it doesn’t seem like there’s anything wrong with it.
