Students Excel When They Find Purpose—So How Do We Help Them?
It was once common for students to find purpose in their studies through work and extra-curricular activities. However, as time has changed, so have the ways in which students find purpose. Today, there are many different ways to gain purpose in life, and students must find a way to incorporate these activities into their coursework.
One way to find purpose in your coursework is by exploring different options and opportunities. This can be done through readings, projects, and discussions with classmates. Additionally, you can work on projects outside of your coursework and gain new knowledge and perspectives.
Another way to help students find purpose is by providing opportunities for them to network with others. This can be done through groups, clubs, or other activities that appeal to them. Additionally, you can provide opportunities for students to pursue their passions, whether that be through art, music, or other activities.
Wherever students find purpose, it is important to help them stay motivated. This can be done by offering support, providing materials, or providing opportunities to share their experiences.
