Often the rigor and structure of college studies can seem to get in the way of keeping and realizing your original educational and career dreams and aspirations. As a college student, discovering your passion is inextricably tied to your purpose for pursuing education. Often the structure of achieving your education, the pre-requisites, course requirements, competing needs, wants and responsibilities may overshadow or obscure the fulfillment of your original life ambitions.
In order to stay true to your initial academic desires and interests, or to determine what they are, it is important to engage in an assessment of your educational strengths, abilities, and history to help provide context and support for your current and future endeavors. By utilizing the resources provided you can stay on the path you originally planned, establish a plan if none existed, or re-tool ideas of where your education can take you.
