Encouragement. By getting students to reflect this way at this time, it encourages them to seek out ways to focus and supplement their classroom education in order to have as strong a set of knowledge, skills, experience, and qualities when they graduate. Advising. This is a way for us as your advisors to get a better sense of what your interests and goals are and what would help you be successful. Program assessment.
