Spring is that time of the year when our freshmen are comfortably ensconced in college life; the first semester's classes are behind them, friendships have been formed, majors switched, and a certain comfort level has been achieved.
The challenge for these students is to think beyond the comfortable present, and to start formulating some longer term academic and professional goals. There are some basic questions they can start to ask themselves. Do they want to go straight into the workforce or on to some form of postgraduate education? Do they want to spend some time volunteering at home or abroad? And what are the stepping stones to the achievement of these goals? What role do things like internships, service, study abroad, or external scholarships play? These are all questions that I and other members of the faculty can help with.
Spring is also the time of the year when our seniors get a little jittery, and it's not just Blackbird coffee! Most are both excited and a little anxious about the future. They are in the process of applying for jobs, grad school, and scholarships, and moving on to the next stage of their lives.
What we discovered this year was that a significant majority of these students (72%) were either going, or planning to go, on to some some of postgraduate education--Ph.D., masters, medical, and law school programs.
Certainly we wish them all the best, and ask that they stay in touch with us over the years.
