JUST BECAUSE someone tells you to study before the last minute doesn't mean you will.
Nor does everyone follow the tons of advice given on how to choose and succeed in higher education, doled out by practically anyone, from your guidance counselor to your neighbor.
But just the same, it's good to have an idea of what to expect. Especially from someone who has been through it recently.
That's where the expertise of our Pittsburgh Post-Gazette interns comes in. They've been there, done that.
Higher education offers an opportunity to find out more about who you really are. What your academic interests are. Who your friends are. What you want out of life.
There's more than one way to approach this grand adventure.
So we're giving you the views from 13 interns -- all currently enrolled or recent graduates -- who share what they wish they knew when they started.
