This post is just a quick THANKS! to the great members here. Through Ricochet I’ve been able to meet some astounding people (even if only through posts and audio meet ups), and hardly a day goes by where I don’t learn something here. I’m not going to name names because I don’t want to be […]

Dear Uncle Max, I can’t understand it. I’m not weird or anything, but women just won’t go out with me. I’m nice and polite and respectful, a good listener, all the things women say they want. They’re happy to be my friends — just never anything more. Why? More

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Free Advice To College Freshmen

 

It’s Labor Day weekend, which means that professors are brushing off their dress robes, administrators are running around campus like mad men, parents are dealing with a simultaneous rush of emotions and emptying of wallets, and college freshmen are being herded from one orientation event to another while desperately trying to figure out more important things — like where their classes will be, what time the dining hall closes, and how a laundry machine works.

Those vital matters aside — what, you think I’m kidding? — college presents a number of challenges to young people for which they’re often unprepared. Many of us have been there — some recently, some a long time ago — and all of us wish we’d heard more and listened with greater attention. So, in 200 words or less, what should a frosh know and remember over the next four years?

Penelope, I miss you. Your weekly posts were one of the Ricochet 1.0 hooks that brought me on board. Thursdays were more survivable when you were around. Your advice was more grounded than Abby, or her associates. More

It was a wonderful little compendium of advice, and had a special link right on the Member Feed so that we would never forget. Does anyone have a link to it? Is that still around? Will it be returning as a permanent link on the […]
