Why reflection?

Reflection allows students the opportunity to develop their own learning and build stronger connections between experiences. It provides space for students to take any experience and gain a better understanding of the things they learned from the activity and how to apply that learning other areas of their life. 

CMU Gold Journal Reflections will prompt students to complete 1-2 pages of reflection in which they will articulate learning and leadership development from co-curricular experiences, reflect on how co-curricular involvement can influence career outcomes, and begin to identify their sense of purpose through interests and values.
