Things I Wish My Kids Would Ask Me
Editor's note: Barry Courter has a 24-year-old son who is a college graduate and a 19-year-old daughter who is a sophomore in college.
Q: Dad, college offers a lot of oppor-tunities to do things like play club or intramural sports, work at the campus radio station, do community projects or volunteer. Which should I do?
A: All of them. But you have to figure out how much time each will take away from studying. Activities require a time commitment, so you have to be careful. Only you can figure that out, but you will never have a better chance to try things completely foreign to you and things you think you already know than during the next few years.
