Ok, so here’s what we know in September of 2020: There are a TON of students taking a gap year this year! And they are finding creative and meaningful ways to spend their year. We want to help students make the most of their gap year this year- especially if was unexpected.
With that in mind, we invited College Success Expert Katy Oliveira to tell us about skill-building. As the host of the Collegehood Advice podcast, Katy regularly speaks to experts who share tips about how to succeed during college and thrive during life. Katy walks us through the three sets of skills that college students need to be able to thrive on campus and how to build those skills on your gap year.
