I learned the value of personal initiative while at CSU. There were so many social distractions that, although very enjoyable and important nonetheless, could very easily have become my primary focus at the detriment of my schoolwork. In fact, if I didn't already have a career in the military in mind for when I graduated, I may have been one of the statistics that didn't graduate on time, if I graduated at all. Have fun - Fort Collins is a beautiful, fun place to be, but stay focused on the task at hand. GPA might not seem to be that big of a deal, but it can and will haunt you if you end up with something less than a 3.0 when searching for a job if you lack certain specialized skills that potential employers may use to "overlook" your poor performance as an undergrad. In certain "special" jobs I was selected for in the military, part of the process involved psych tests, and my less than stellar performance as an undergrad led to a lengthy "discussion" (seemed more like an inquisition) with the psych doc, where I had to explain why I didn't get a better GPA. This might have been a special case, but you could very easily be in the same situation if you don't exercise the maturity, initiative and propper judgement to balance social activities with your schoolwork. Hope this helps - Go Rams!
