Pathways work for those who take responsibility

By Thunderworld Staff

The Pathways program is something Highline should be proud of, but still is not a catch-all system. 

This new program, helps organize the 100+ degree and certificate options into just six categories; offers a new student skill and interest test, where students find out careers associated with their current skills and passions; and assigns a student to an adviser who has worked in that field.

Though even with all of this, a student can still very much fall through the cracks if they are not prepared to take responsibility for their own education.

Pathways gives students who have a drive for education ways to get connected to the resources offered here.

 It is offered to all students, but if you are a student who is still searching for a reason to work hard to get through college, this might help by helping you find a direction.

The most important thing this program will be able to offer you are connections, which is actually a pretty impactful one. Like with all tools though, you'll have to be willing to use it the right way to get any good use out of it. 

Students should take up this opportunity, and challenge themselves to be committed to their future, because you'll be given the keys.
