Undergraduate Freshmen and Sophomores: Designing Your Life for College and Beyond Coaching Group

Mar 11 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The start of your college experience is a good time to develop an open mind set and practice design principles as you create a foundation for your future careers. Our discussions and activities come from the book Designing Your Life, whose authors are Dave Evans and Bill Burnett.  As a group member you will use practical activities to identify possible career futures and design your way forward, while identifying a well-designed next chapter in your college experience.

This coaching group is for any Undergraduate Freshman/Sophomore student from any college within Northeastern University and is limited to no more than 20 students.

Please register ONLY if you will be able to attend all sessions (missing one session is not a problem. Missing more than 2 sessions may result in not being able to continue with the group).
