You will begin to develop the tools necessary to craft a cohesive, evolving plan of action to guide yourself through the UW and future endeavors, to draw upon when faced with challenging decisions. These tools will be useful for scholarship applications, graduate school and the professional fields. The Autumn quarter course is limited to Freshmen & Sophomores.
