College offers us multiple chances to start over. I was in a rock band when I started college with hopes we’d take off and I could drop out of school to be a musician. We played the Warped Tour, opened for some big names, recorded two albums and toured the Midwest. But it didn’t pan out, and now I will graduate having become a relatively well-known multimedia political reporter on my way to Washington, D.C. If I hadn’t been in college, I don’t have any clue how else I would’ve achieved a reinvention like that.
