Students talking in Hedberg Library.
All Stories

What do I want from this semester? How do I make decisions? How can I get involved? How can I maintain my most important relationships? These questions and more will be explored in a new four-week program called 40Form, which begins Monday, Oct. 3.

Through a daily email prompt and small group opportunities, students will begin to discern who they are and who they want to be in the world — on campus and beyond. Grounded in lived experience, 40Form guides reflection on personal experiences, vocation, study, work, self-care, relationships, fulfillment, and organization.

How can I participate?

It’s easy to participate! Simply sign up for the program or reach out to Debbie Clark at by Friday, Sept. 30.

Once you’ve joined, you will receive a daily email with questions to guide your thinking. You can journal or simply reflect on the daily prompts. Participants are also invited to gather for an optional weekly small-group discussion. The small groups are led by Carthage student facilitators and are a great opportunity to build connections with others and to explore common themes that college students face.
