Preparing for an uncertain future

Robbie Jefferiss, University Advisor, East Campus

One of the joys of working in a university advising office is helping our students visualise their future; clarifying their goals and exploring opportunities, many of which they have never considered. You can see their eyes shift upwards, seeing themselves on a campus, or in a new city, or learning a new language. In the busy life of a high school student, asking them to stop and consider what life beyond graduation looks like can be empowering. It can also sometimes be scary as they consider moving from a fairly structured life to one that will be theirs (with some input from their parents, of course!) to decide.
