The End of a Semester, The Start of the Reflection

Not only is the beginning to middle of December a time for finals, peppermint hershey kisses (that might just be me), and holiday shopping, but it’s also a time for reflection. For students in leadership positions, thinking of “new years semester resolution” for your group or club are just as important as thinking of resolutions for yourself. When your E-Board met over the summer or in September, you probably compiled a list of goals you wanted to achieve. What were they? How many of them did you accomplish?

Here are some questions to keep in mind when reviewing how successful your semester was for your group or club:

  • How much money did you add to your budget/fundraise?
  • How many more members did you attract?
  • How many events did you put on?
  • Did everything you plan to do happen?
  • If not, why?
  • What could you improve on next semester?
  • What are your goals for next semester?

After reflecting on your past semester, start making resolutions for the next. Take your goals and accomplishments from last semester, and build on your goals in order to build your group in power, size and accomplishments. Improve your group in order to help the members of your group get the best out of your organization.

If your E-Board would like some guidance, check out the “New Years Resolutions” student leader training on Thursday, December 4th in the Metro from 4:45-6:15!
