Here are our recommendations for how to use your time for college planning:

For All Students:

Create a structure to your day

Set your alarm, exercise, eat meals at regular times, get your schoolwork/classwork done

Keep your grades up

Explore intellectually

Read

Learn something new/find a new passion

Take an online course in either an offbeat field or a current field of interest

Already have a passion? Do a deeper dive: read up on it, research its history, write something about it, …

Build something from scratch. Could be a bookcase or a loaf of bread

Explore a new art form

Know everything your iPhone can do? Ever shot a short film on it?

We’d love it if you’d shoot a quick video about your college aspirations, planning your Mentors 4 College mentor!

Send it to Mentors4College@gmail.com.

Grow something indoors (or if this lasts awhile, move outdoors!)

Help fix things around the house

Have concerns or questions? Contact your Mentors 4 College mentor
