While we tend to focus on how much of an academic and social education college can offer, we tend to look past the professional skills students learn. To be fair, that’s because they are rarely taught in the classroom! Amy and Mike invited student advocate and podcaster Justin Dzuy Nguyen to explain what high schoolers should know about the next level.
What are five things you will learn in this episode?
