Reflecting on College
What does your student want to achieve by the time they graduate?
It's okay for students to spend time considering the possibilities available.
As your student moves through an academic year, encourage them to take time to reflectively consider why they are in college, asking:
- Are they still on a path towards achieving intended goals or can they take time to use campus resources to reevaluate their major and desired career path?
- Do they know about Career Services, internships, and opportunities to study abroad or put their skill, education and training to practical use through the Peace Corps.
- Would additional studies through graduate school or extended learning programs help them prepare for a career in a specific field of study?
