You're going to do a lot while you're in college and it's important to present that in a smart way. Your experiences in UO Advantage are organized based on 10 learning areas (the badges). They help you see where you have a lot of experience and where you need to seek out some new ones. This also allows you to show progressions between your experiences and how this lead to that which lead you to identifying where you want to go after college. Being able to show all these experiences together gives you an advantage in how you show your college experience and how you build off of it.
