"The Best Years of Our Lives." That's how many people describe their college experience - in
retrospect. The truth is, when most of us set out for college, it's often our first extended
journey away from home and the comfort and watchful eye of parents, family, friends, coaches, and
the familiarity of what we grew up with. Exciting? Absolutely! Daunting? Quite likely.
In this section of articles at Keirsey.com, we'd like to help you gain success throughout your college career

your parents (prepare for those college holiday trips home). The best place to start is to begin with yourself, by taking

know you've changed, but what's wrong with everyone else who didn't go off to college?
Are you in the right major? How do you know? What else might be a fit for your natural strengths and
talents? Is grad school in your future? How about an internship?
It's all here at Keirsey.com! (and if you don't find what you need in this section, try Temperament and Love
