Welcome back to another school year.

Make a conscious effort to keep your academic and extracurricular activities balanced and take the time to create an action plan that will position you for success.
Speaking of creating an action plan that will set you up for success, did you know that people who found purpose in their work later in life shared a common set of experiences in college? A study conducted by Gallup in April 2019 identified four key college experiences that aligned with graduates who found purpose later in their careers:
- Having an applied internship or job while in college
- Having someone who encourages students’ goals and dreams
- Being given realistic expectations for post-graduation employment prospects.
- Participating in a class/program that helps students think about pursuing meaning in work.
