Designing You - Life Beyond Your Grades

Designing YOU is written for a specific time in your life. High school is probably behind you. Suddenly, you need to make some weighty, often intimidating, decisions for yourself.

  • "What will I do when I graduate?"
  • "Am I on the right path?"
  • "How will I know if I'm making the right choices?"
  • "What type of career will inspire me?"
  • "What major should I declare?"
  • "Is there more to life than grades...?"

Designing YOU is about designing a roadmap that helps you address the relentless questions that you’re probably facing right now.
