As you start to focus in on your education in your third year, your digital portfolio will begin to be more focused. Take some time to notice the process of looking at your interests as evidenced by the courses you’ve taken, summer work, internships and independent research. Consider how engagement with the process of thinking about your work can shape your next two years. Take stock of your skills. What do you know and what do you want to know? Consider a strategy for getting from here to there.
Third year idea for writing: Reflect on your choice of specialization–Global Education or Leadership Development or both? How have the SUMMIT courses you have engaged inspired you toward one of these specializations? Do you have particular strengths that speak to one or the other? In what ways do the specializations integrate with your major and educational goals? How might the specializations help you with your short and long term post-graduate goals?
