As a student you should get involved in lots of activities and events on campus, sports, clubs, theater, volunteering, the arts, etc. Keep an open mind and cast a wide net to see where your interests and strengths intersect. When you find areas you love and can excel in then plant some roots and take a leadership role. Don¹t just show up and go through the motions, the goal is to find one or 2 things where you stand out from the pack and can shine. By the time you graduate you will be known for that thing you do best and leave a lasting legacy as your mark at the school. Be exceptional at something. It will show your drive, work ethic, and determination.
