Avoid Experiencing

  • Making misguided, short-sighted choices which can create mistakes that can last a lifetime such as feeling lost, scared, lonely or confused 


  • Meaningless Rut:  Students have successfully graduated, but foolishly didn’t plan what to do with their new lives. This causes them to dig themselves into a hole of meaningless and purposeless activities.

  • Impostor Syndrome:  This happens to people in their 20’s and 30’s who have taken a job are successfully but feel they are a fraud and afraid that other people will find them out. 

  • Post Transition Stress Disorder: This is experienced by students who have only thought of one thing they want to do after leaving college. When that idea doesn’t work, they become bored and depressed, and make poor life decisions and rash personal choices in order to make sense out of life once more.
