Times article comment

It surprised me to see that the Harvard study said that those students that got involved with an activity outside of their regular studies/classes were happiest. And among those students that worked outside of class, the students that did the best academically were the ones that volunteered as apposed to receiving wages. It makes me wonder what kind of people are the ones that volunteer. Are they harder working or do they come from a more privileged background or what?
Taking a mix or courses sounds good but does ASU offer such a thing as this. My courses are already laid out for me in a preplanned list of courses according to my major. A mix of courses might work for someone not certain of what they want to major in.
I think that some time before the end of the first semester of the freshman year there should be training on time management. I have not been in school for too many years to know if this is a stupid suggestion or not.
