Self-Reflection for Busy College Students
Kara Shustrin

Who am I? Who do I want to become? What are my responsibilities to others in this world?  While these questions may not seem critical right now, they ARE important for you to consider! We believe college students should graduate with the skills, knowledge, and experiences to pursue a satisfying career. But more importantly, college students should feel comfortable knowing who they are and how they want to relate to others. If you don’t like what you see when you look inside yourself, it can be challenging to have positive and productive relationships with others. Come take a moment for some self-reflection and self-assessment!
