Should you grill college students about their choices (major, minor, intended career, unknown future) while the turkey is being carved? Consider some golden rules of engagement for this often ambivalent holiday.
College students, especially those in their first year, often struggle with time management. How can they learn to use their time wisely while still reserving some for recreation and socializing? Documenting where and how they spend (and often lose) their time is a good first step.
