But let's not forget the biggest segment of university life: College Sports. While I'm not a sports fan, I can only tell you that from my experience, it's all about Football!

Parents, ensure your new college student is aware of all the programs, clubs, organizations, and sports teams that are available. Encourage them to seek membership and to be active in their roles as members. This helps them build the confidence they will need when they enter the workforce.
Hey, it also adds some nice sparkle to their resume or CV when the time comes!
