Dear Schools of Business Students,
It is a great time for reflection as we come to the end of this calendar year and celebrate the holiday season. I am grateful that you have chosen to invest in a Wake Forest education. I hope that you are already realizing the benefits of your investment and that you use your vacation time to go back and think about your goals, especially as they relate to your career, and the actions you will take to attain them.
Take a few minutes to sit back and reflect on what you’ve learned in the classroom and what you’ve learned about yourself. Pressure-test the assumptions you have made regarding what you want to do with your life. Utilize resources from family and friends and others you may meet during your break. I hope you will come back with a renewed sense of purpose and fire about what you would like to accomplish and a road map on how you will get there.
Most of all make sure to also enjoy the time with your family and friends during this holiday. I wish all of you and your families, the very best during this Holiday Season and hope you have a restful, relaxing and safe winter break.
Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
