Looking to the future

“I was more of a go-with-the-flow type of guy, but with that class, I realized, time management is key. Doing the plans and maps helped me realize I need to stay on track to reach my goals.” — Darius Boeke, mathematics major from Sidney, Ohio

Get more out of life!

What will be your major? What do you want to do with your life? Teens are often pressed to have their lives fully planned out before even graduating high school.

During your first semester at Bluffton University, you’ll be mentored by professors to build a framework for your college experience.

“At first, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my future, but the people at Bluffton told me that it was perfectly okay. The professors encouraged me and let me know that we could figure out my future together.” — Riley Garmatter, Primary P-5 Education major from Rawson, Ohio

As a senior, you will revisit the Design Your Life curriculum to envision life after college

Design Your Life will help you get more out of (instead of cramming more into) your life.
