Experts, I have some travel advice to ask of you. I love taking vacations, but I’ve never done what I’d consider a true “outdoor vacation.” Sure, I’ve hung out outside on vacation--I’ve been on beach vacations like everyone else--but I never felt like I really experienced nature, outdoor sports, or other staples of those hip, outdoorsy vacations that everyone seems to be taking these days. So I’m wondering: how would you suggest I get started? I’m not super athletic and don’t rock-climb or hike or anything, so I’m a little lost.

I’m pretty good at what I do, and I’m very excited to be heading out into the working world soon. But one thing that I do not do — and am very much not good at — is finance stuff. I don’t get it!
As I get closer to graduation, I’ve been trying to figure out “adult stuff,” like money and investing. I think I get the general gist of the stock market and investing: I’m supposed to have a diverse portfolio and use my 401k, right? However, I don’t understand gold. My grandparents own gold and talk about it sometimes, but I don’t get how gold can increase in value the way stocks can, or how to go about investing in gold. Experts, what’s with gold as an investment?
I’m thinking about going on a big vacation with some friends from school this summer since it’s our last summer before graduation. But there’s just one problem: we’re all younger than 25, so we can’t rent a car! We’re trying to figure out ways to work around this, but they all seem kind of expensive. Experts, what can we do?
I need some travel advice. I just booked a trip for two to Brisbane, Australia. My boyfriend and I are going to spend a whole week there thanks to my parents, who paid for the all-inclusive trip.
I’ve been interested in the law for a long time. When I was a kid, I watched courtroom dramas and stuff like that all the time. So, when I went to school, I decided to be pre-law. However, I’m having some doubts about that choice now. I don’t like the reputation lawyers have, and I find some of the other people on the pre-law track abrasive. The high stress of law school and a legal career are starting to feel like they might be a little much for me. I’m not sure I want to stay in school for as long as it will take to become a lawyer, and I don’t know if I have what it takes to focus on cases for as long as lawyers do, or to handle details as minute as they must.
I could use a second opinion. My parents called me yesterday to let me know that my grandpa passed away. It wasn’t necessarily unexpected, since he’d been struggling with health complications for about a year.
I am a foreign exchange student studying in the US (from Germany). I want to do my big USA road trip this summer, because when else will I get the opportunity? I’m doing a big loop, up and down the coasts, and twice across. I’d never been to the US before studying here, though. I haven’t even left campus very much; I work hard. What are some of the things a foreign student should know while tripping around the USA?
I could use some guidance. I just graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in microbiology. I’m now working as a lab technician with the county, and was planning to continue my career in that direction.
I’ve been considering a career in law for a while now, and that’s the track I’ve been following, more or less, here as an undergraduate. But, lately, I’m not so sure that I want to practice law for a living. I feel like it’s my responsibility to use my talents to help people, and I’m worried that I won’t be able to do that in law, or that I’ll be doing it for the wrong reasons. I know that lawyers can make a lot of money, but what sorts of things might I be able to do with my skills that could actually make a difference in people’s lives?
I could use some help from someone with marketing savvy. I’m between my sophomore and junior year taking an honors digital marketing class for the summer term. I’ve enjoyed the class so far, but it’s one of the most challenging ones I’ve taken. It doesn’t help that it’s during the summer, too, of course.
What’s the best way to lose weight?
I need some help. I’m a college sophomore majoring in political science and minoring in economics. This semester, I’m taking an introductory finance class, which is interesting, but also hard. I haven’t aced a test or quiz the whole semester.
I own a small property in my hometown, thanks to the generosity of a departed relative. The problem is, I don’t really use it. I was thinking about renting it for a while, but I never really got off the dime and did the work it would take to do that (I don’t even really know how to do that). Now I’m thinking about selling it, but my parents clearly wish I wouldn’t. They think I should hold onto it as an investment. But what good is an investment if you can’t get money out of it? Experts, I’m not sure what to do. Can you give me some insight into how all this real estate investing stuff works?
As I get closer to graduation (stop the ride, I want to get off!), I know that I’m going to have to deal with a whole lot of “adult stuff” very soon. One of those things is insurance, and it already feels like a hassle to me. My parents are always on me about checking out benefits for jobs and getting renter’s insurance for my off-campus apartment. However, I find insurance websites stressful, and I don’t always feel like I understand what I’m getting and why. Experts, can I trouble you for a crash course in insurance?
I’m graduating this year, but I haven’t been able to land a job offer yet. I’m trying to remain optimistic, but I’m pretty worried that my liberal arts major won’t get me the type of job I want. I’m not sure what to do if I don’t get any kind of offer. I guess I could move back in with my parents or something, but I’m hoping to avoid that. However, if I’m not qualified for entry-level jobs, I feel like I don’t have many other options. What should I do?
I’m not a total luddite or anything, but I sometimes wish that I could go back in time. The modern world of online shopping, constant connection, and lack of privacy really gets to me. Sometimes I dream about going off and working on a farm, or running a mom-and-pop business, where technology wouldn’t be a part of my daily life. But then, I think that these sorts of jobs are in danger of being eliminated by technology, anyway, so maybe I’d worry about technology more than ever. Is there any way to escape the modern world? How can I live more simply?
I need some help with a challenging assignment. I’m taking an urban development class this semester, because it’s required for my major. This past week, we discussed the differences between zoning laws for commercial versus residential real estate. I didn’t find the chapter very exciting.
I need a hand comparing my options. I’m a senior graduating this May with a degree in childhood development. I was originally planning to teach elementary school, but, during one of my more recent internships, I changed my mind, as a result of working closely with school counselors.
I could use some last-minute help researching an assignment for my public health class. Last Thursday, everyone received a random notecard with a different public health crisis on it. We were each given a week to research the topic and present it in seven to ten minutes, plus a three to five-minute audience question and answer session.
