All Stories

What is a significant goal I have for this semester? How have the first few weeks of the semester gone? How does the reality of the experience compare with what I expected? How can I get involved? How can I maintain my most important relationships?

These questions and more will be explored in a four-week reflection program called On Purpose. Through a daily email prompt and small group opportunities, students will begin to discern who they are and who they want to be — on campus and beyond. On Purpose guides reflection on personal experiences, vocation, study, work, self-care, relationships, and purpose.

How Can I Participate?

Simply sign up for the program below and 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 optional, weekly small-group discussions led by Carthage student facilitators. These groups are great for building connections with others and exploring common themes college students face.

Register online or contact Debbie Clark at dclark@carthage.edu by Friday, Sept. 29.

Small groups will meet weekly from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Sept. 20 through Oct. 11 with free lunch and from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Thursdays, Sept. 14 through Oct. 12 with snacks provided.

Participants choose one, not both, optional small group sessions to attend. All small groups will meet in the Ehrler Hospitality Center, located in the A. F. Siebert Chapel.

Participants will also earn credit on their MAP (My Aspire Plan) powered by Suitable.
