Students should say yes to new opportunities and explore new interests but also know when to commit. Knowing who you are and where you’re headed will help students to say no in order to say yes to only the best opportunities.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 21, 2015
For students about to start college and for those returning after the summer months, there is a distinguishing factor in students who are prepared to make the most of their experience. These students take advantage of their college opportunities by exploring and trying new things, but they also know when to commit to a main area of interest.
Students tend to fall on one side of the spectrum or the other. Some over-commit themselves and lose focus. For these students, choosing – and sticking to – a college major is an arduous process. Other students are too afraid to take risks and try new things. These students miss out on opportunities for growth and discovering their career interests.
Instead, to make the most of college, students need to ask themselves:
1. What are my core interests and what really engages my strengths and passions?
2. How can I challenge myself to try new things in these areas?
3. What are the few key activities that I will commit to which align with these answers?
To help students answer these questions, Student Launch Pad created its executive-type coaching program for high school and college students. Its affordable, flexible online programs are particularly suited for students who are seeking acceptance to their dream colleges, guidance on selecting their best college major, and help finding their ideal careers.
As students complete assessment tests, exercises, and coaching sessions, they discover what they want out of a college experience. By identifying their strengths, passions, and career interests, students are equipped to apply and gain acceptance to their dream college, as well as select their best college major and career path.
Student Launch Pad is currently accepting enrollments for its 6-week online course for students to identify what college, major, and career are best for them. Enrollments have also started for the 9-week online college application course, which is an excellent way for high school juniors to jumpstart the college application process during the summer.

In coaching hundreds of high school and college students, Student Launch Pad’s founder Stephanie Shackelford says, “Students should say yes to new opportunities and explore new interests but also know when to commit. Knowing who you are and where you’re headed will help students to say no in order to say yes to only the best opportunities.”
