“Navigating Multiple Worlds”

Do you ever feel like you’re living a double-life? Do you struggle connecting who you are in the classroom, with how your family see you, to how you function in the workplace, and how you carry yourself at social gatherings? Bottom line, you are not alone. Throughout our schooling we have been expected to be more than a student. Not only do we need to get good grades, but we also need to be involved in extracurricular activities, visit our family on weekends, hold a job and internship, volunteer on a regular basis, and have a close-knit circle of friends. The multiple worlds a college student feels pressured to navigate simultaneously can feel daunting. At this student success chat you will hear from others on how to positively represent yourself and weave your unique passions into all that you pursue to achieve the most important thing of all: getting the most out of college and life.

“Building a Strategic Network of Mentors & Supporters”

No one gets to where they want to be alone. Building a strategic network of mentors and supporters is critical to cultivating success. Most things you learn in life are the result of someone investing in your success and providing insight on how to succeed. Mentors and supporters introduce you to new opportunities you may have never considered, they connect you with others who have expertise in a field you are interested in, and most importantly they consider your challenges as they would their own and give you advice and connect you to resources to aid your needs. At this student success chat you will learn the tools to build a strategic network of mentors and supporters.

“The Fear of Going into the Real World” 

The scariest question you can ask a graduating senior is: what are you going to do after college? Our whole lives the path has been set before us: go to school, graduate from college, and get a job. Easy as it sounds on paper, “becoming a professional” is a complex journey that can encompass many different paths. Face your fears and gain perspective on this pivotal moment you have worked tirelessly to achieve, and power your mindset to face these mental barriers head on. Even if you are not a graduating senior, take this opportunity to expand insight on what your peers are facing and how to prepare yourself now for success after graduation.

“Reinventing Oneself while Staying True to Oneself”

There is no better day than today to become the person you always wanted to be. College is a symbolic and physical shift from the past, promoting a fresh start to break old habits and become a better version of you. Labels like “the quiet one,” “the one who only knows how to play sports,” and “the trouble maker” become high school remnants as you are immersed in a completely different environment. At this student success chat you will learn how to take advantage of this opportunity to reinvent yourself by stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying new things.
