The Jamestown Journey to Success: Look Inward

Students Look Inward through examining their own interests, strengths, goals, and dreams. This begins in Journey 101, a course designed especially for first-year students to help them make a successful adjustment to college and to provide time for personal reflection and planning.

Journey 101 students meet in small groups each week with a faculty/staff teacher and an upper-class student guide. Teachers and guides help the students think carefully about what they want to accomplish, both inside and outside the classroom, during the next four years. This results in thoughtful choices of major and minor areas of study as well as involvement in co-curricular activities.
