5 Things College Students Should Do While in Uni

Image
I know this is quite late for those who have graduated and have joined the workforce or perhaps still part of the statistics of the jobless.
My 7 years of being part of the workforce made me realize that there were things that I should have done back in the university. Some may argue that I have written some stuff here about not regretting the things you should, could and would have done, I am going to ask this just once for the sake of those who will and still can do these things, don’t be uptight. Anyway, let’s proceed. I am not claiming to be a guru or something, just based on my experience when I interview potential candidates for a spot in my team.

Like any other posts, this too is a long overdue one. But nonetheless still worth posting.
There were some discussions as to where we will have our annual summer outing. It was supposed to be in Hong Kong, but of course the cost was high. Then moved to Boracay, then everyone says near Manila so they were trying to have Batangas in the picture. I have been researching some of the places you could visit for a day without incurring a lot of cost as well as being able to help the community that takes care of the place.



I chance upon Lake Pandin a couple of months back when I was trying to research for some place I could go either alone or with friends. Lake Pandin is one of the 7 lakes in San Pablo, Laguna where the water can go as deep as 180 feet.



It takes about 2 to 3 hours drive to this place and would only cost you about Php 380 per person, which includes a 2-3 hour lake tour/trip and lunch. This place was very peaceful. If you want to get out of the city for a short while and be one wi…
