Seawolves SPEAK! “What Are Your Academic Goals For The Semester?”

Sonoma State University has finally started its Fall semester. Although there are many returning students, there have been many new faces on campus from first year students, to transfer students. Getting the semester started with Seawolves that have begun their last fall semester of their undergraduate career.

In the blink of an eye, Sonoma State students are on their third week of school. The first couple of weeks of school consists of adjusting to a new schedule, reuniting with friends, and creating academic goals for the semester. Several students have set semester goals for themselves. Students are not only looking forward to the semester, but many are already making plans for their future careers. From finding internships, to beginning their graduate school research, and even looking forward to having perfect attendance in all their classes.

Some Seawolves are determined and excited to not only excel in their classes, but are ready to learn from their internships that will prepare them for their future careers, get outstanding grades, and even start looking into graduate programs. Some students want to take advantage of the resources that Sonoma State offers like the writing center, and plan on meeting with their professors. Others are determined on getting enough sleep because of how short their commute has become since moving closer to campus. 

Starting the year with a positive mindset, not only does it encourage them to start the year strong, but it sets expectations that are continuously being worked on throughout the semester.
