The Reflection to End All Reflections!

I don't have to tell any of you how hard the first semester of college can be. You're living it, so you know. But how you know is an undeniably unique and individualized experience. Over the course of the semester, it has personally been a great privelege that many of you confided in me about your struggles and achievements, and I have been humbled by the magnitude of the challenges you face and awed by the resiliency in your efforts to overcome the obstacles in your path.

With the approaching holidays and the end of the semester in sight, we are all faced with time and space to contemplate on what we've learned the last few months and how to best move forward from here, so I have been inspired to ask all of you to reflect on and share some of the the experiences that have shaped you into the person you are now. I want to hear your story.

So, describe for me both your greatest achievement and most difficult struggle since you've stepped foot onto campus this semester, and how your identity has changed since graduating from high school. You can draw from any type of experience, from personal to academic, relationships to career, politics to religion, family obligations to campus involvement, or anything in between.
