A new year is here, hooray! New Year’s is often the time where we make resolutions of things we want to do better or differently this year. Ways we can grow, improve, be a better person. Your students might be thinking about their possible resolutions as well.
With such a high-achieving student body, our first-year students’ resolutions might be about getting better grades, or landing a leadership position in an organization, etc. And while giving your best effort in the classroom and being involved on campus are worthy goals, there are other possible resolutions that might help your first year students have a healthier (in all senses of the word) 2015.
This is adapted from a graphic from January 2014. If your students – or you – are looking for some aspirational goals, are these ones worth considering?
