New Year’s Resolutions

Dec. 1st - Dec. 15th Blog.png

We’ve made it to the end of the semester, and the end of 2016. With this being the final blog post of the year, take some time to reflect on what you have accomplished this past semester, and share your goals and resolutions for 2017.

What are some things you want to start doing? Is there anything you want to improve? What are you going to do differently in 2017?

We all hit rough patches in our lives, especially as college students. We get stressed and overwhelmed all the time. However, we always bounce back, and overcome our challenges. This post can be a way for us to share our tips on dealing with stress and staying positive.

Use this post to share what works for you. How do you deal with stress? What do you do to make your day better? How do you stay positive, and see the bright side of every situation?

Gobble Gobble!


With Thanksgiving just around the corner, now is the perfect time to reflect on what we are thankful for. In this blog post, reflect on who and what you are thankful for. You can use this as a place to give a little shout out to your friends, family, site supervisor, dog, cat, or fish. Have fun, and Happy Thanksgiving!



There is nothing you can’t do if you set your mind to it. So, what do you want to do? Write about your dreams and aspirations. Think about the previous blog, do your passions align with your aspirations?

What are your career goals? What are your personal goals? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 50 years?
