3 Reasons to Start Your Portfolio Freshman Year

As the semester comes to a close, it’s a great time to step back and think about projects or experiences you’ve had that could be great additions to your portfolio. While you might think portfolio building is only important for juniors and seniors, it’s actually a great thing to start right at the beginning of your college of experience so you can build up a showcase of your skills and experiences throughout college. Check out this advice from USA Today about 3 Steps to Build a Winning College Portfolio:
