March 22 Workshop: Self-Reflection and Setting Goals

Tuesday, 6:30-7:30 p.m., McCormick Rm. 2303
Recommended for all students

Maybe Yoda has something right! We can either say we are going to try to do it -  or we will. What does that have to do with self-reflection and goals? Reflecting on circumstances and seeing the whole picture, not just your perspective, but all perspectives provides an opportunity to create more specific achievable and identifiable goals for yourself. So if you have been thinking about thinking and attempting to make meaning from it, come join us for this workshop!
