There is a job hotline type of thing that you can sign up for and they send emails with possible job matches. Also the career counselors are very helpful.

It was so long ago, there were no social networks or other types of activities that are so common today. It did, however, give me the knowledge and the hands on experience that I needed to have a successful career.

Again, probably not relevant today. In a nutshell, young overachievers with an unrealistic set of expectionsd about the future. The culture was party today and study tomorrow.
