College Goals

March 14, 2017

As you plan college visits, and take standardized tests, it can be helpful to clarify what you are looking for in a college by setting goals. 

 

Here are some ideas for envisioning and committing to your #collegegoals!

 

 

 

 

1. Create a “college vision board" on Pinterest. You might include some of the following: 

 

-campus pictures

-pictures of activities that you want to take part in during college: sporting events, concerts, community service projects, fraternity events, and sorority events are some ideas, and/or

-inspiring quotes or pictures

 

2. Write down your goals. Use the SMART guidelines for goal setting:

 

S- specific

M- measurable

A- achievable

R- relevant (why is this goal important to you?)

T- time-bound

 

-Share your goals with important people in your life: parents, friends, a coach, a school counselor, a teacher, etc. 

-Keep reminders of your goals in places where you see these reminders frequently. 

-Taking one step at a time is the way to achieve long-term goals. Divide and conquer!
