In which I find my people in college.

(via thenormalcollegelife)

For the sake of simplicity (advice for next year’s applicants)

For Heaven’s sakes and your sanity, comprise a Word document of all addresses of the undergraduate offices of all the schools you are applying to.

I can’t tell you how much time I have wasted looking up each individual school’s address for the admissions office.

It’s important to make friendships that are deeper than gossiping and drinking and smoking and going out.

Make friends who you can go get breakfast with, make friends you can cry with, make friends who support your life goals and believe in you.

Anonymous said: Do you know of anyone who works at the Calling Center at Columbia? If so, what do they say about the job? Thanks!

college-advice:

I’ve heard that it’s a pretty standard job — call a few alumni, get shitted on for annoying them or bothering to call for more money even after they’ve donated a shit ton. But, the days that you actually get money, are nice. I bet working there is pretty chill. I could never deal with old, white men though. 

Update: Here’s a blog post from Bwog on what’s really going on inside the Calling Center.
