Formal Self-Reflection

The first year of college is one of growth and change, characterized by an increasing awareness of the full spectrum of experiences that impact learning. As you prepare to choose a college and major, we will ask you to think carefully about your hopes, dreams, and progress. To facilitate such reflection, will ask you complete a set of questions we have developed to support you in the decision-making process.

Once completed, your answers will be submitted to your first-year advisor to serve as a starting point in the discussions leading to the selection of a major and the completion of the College Declaration form. Your responses will also be included in the file that will be passed on to your future school or college.
