Dear Chattanooga State Community,

It’s the final week of classes before Spring Break! For those of you in 7-week classes, the end is near; for those of you in 15-week classes, the mid-point is quickly approaching. Whichever type of class you are in, spring is a great opportunity to take account of where you are.

Reflection is the secret sauce of successfully meeting your goals.

After this last week of classes wraps up, take some time to think about what went right and what could have gone better. Write these down. Here are some questions you might ask yourself.

  1. What worked? What didn’t work? Why?
  2. What will you continue? What will you change?
  3. What did you learn about yourself?
  4. What was the most empowering thing you did?

Keep pushing yourself to finish this week strong! During Spring Break, I hope you can take some time to reflect and recharge.

Don’t forget, if you’re registered for the second 7-week session, it begins March 13.

Students, We Want to Hear About Your ChattState Experience!

Very soon, students across the nation will be participating in the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) to share their college experiences and help shape their college's future. Your responses to our survey are very important in helping us understand your experiences and improve ChattState.

Keep an eye on your @my.chattanoogastate.edu email this week for your invitation to complete the survey. It will take about 15 minutes but could help students experience a better ChattState for years to come.
