Get off of the Couch

Get off of the Couch

Opinion by Nic Hassinger Graphic by Julia Volzke

 
The trick to getting the most out of college is to not fall into a routine. A routine is the killer of progress. A routine is what makes you sit around the house on a sunny day watching Netflix. A routine is what makes you hang out with the same three people for your entire college career. A routine is what keeps you complacent. By avoiding it, your life is guaranteed to have at least a little more excitement.
