College 101: What they definitely didn't tell you on the tour


Hey! It's Elena, and I'm taking you to school early with our new "College 101" podcast episode! I asked other college grads for their personal college hacks and the secret tips that colleges definitely didn't tell you on the tour. This is part of our What I Wish I Knew Before College series, where I talk with college grads about their biggest tips, advice, and funny stories for students. 

Here are their tips for you! I made little categories so you can jump to what you want to read.  More advice to come in PT 2! See you next time! —Elena
