Recently, I have advising sessions with my 67 advisee students who are all freshmen/freshwomen in business school.
When I ask a question of "What would you like to do in summer?", Many students say "I will study English; I will prepare national Exam; I will take a driver's license; I will get a part-time job; I will travel". Yes, they are good students. ^^
But, as a bad advisor smile emoticon , I frequently give this advice for students.
"Go out from your comfort zone, Nerd ^^; Do something for good; Make as many mistakes as you can; Build your own story; Let me listen your interesting story after the summer.".
Yes, I am a firm believer that "Learning by heart is more valuable than learning by brain". And freshmen year is the perfect time for "Learning from mistakes" especially for future business leaders. ^^
