2. Keep Important Docs Online. Stop worrying about carrying your laptop or a flash drive with you everywhere (or worse, emailing yourself) so you can work on your essays whenever you need them.

This student sounds like a brainiac! The two dozen business majors vying for the same job, on the other hand, come across like backwards trolls by comparison.

I couldn't agree more.  It seems like every time I've gone home in the last two years my mom wants me to major in business.  You don't need a degree in business to get a job in the "business" sector.
