Keys to a successful college experience

Connecting with an inspiring professor — engaging in campus activities — working and volunteering — pursuing an internship or study abroad experience — staying healthy — managing money wisely.

These are all things we as parents encourage our students to do, and with good reason — according to the Gallup-Purdue Index (GPI), a recent survey of more than 30,000 U.S. college graduates, they contribute to the kind of college experience that leads to a higher level of well-being and career satisfaction after graduation.

Whether your student is a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior, Purdue University’s “Student Guide to Creating a Successful College Experience” is a great resource to share, with practical tips about getting to know instructors, becoming a leader, developing good study skills, graduating in four years, and more.
