Title:Growing Up: Undergraduates on the Road to Adulthood
Author(s):Heinze, John
Life Goals
Abstract:My research dealt with the goals set up by undergraduate students at UIUC, and how they were planning their lives according to those goals. The goals were categorized as goals within their majors, within their relationships, and within their careers. My proposed research is to look at how the goals that undergraduates set for themselves reflect the desire within the students to be recognized as adults as they progress through this transitory period in their lives.
