The school system does not require a class for students to learn how to live in the real world and function as an adult. We often enter college unprepared to take care of ourselves. Many life skills, including how to develop good habits, manage stress, pay taxes, budget our spending/income, and to live a healthy lifestyle, are necessary, especially when college is the bridge to adulthood. This course will explore the many dimensions of how to successfully adult.
- How to function in the real world, a lifestyle that consists of balancing adult responsibilities with managing our physical and mental health
- Learn the importance of consistency, self-discipline, and hard work to develop efficient routines and habits
- Understand how to manage your time, money, and wellbeing
- Develop financial literacy (budgeting, credit scores, taxes, investments)
- Find your own opportunities and build your knowledge (e.g. jobs, fitness, nutrition, insurance)
- Learn to care for and love yourself
- Learn different techniques to relieve stress and to work more efficiently
The class is structured around discussions on the articles read at home, guest speakers, lectures, as well as participate in the learning platform called Udemy. Students will practice applying adulting concepts learned in class by answering discussion questions after each session, completing reflection-based assignments on Udemy, writing a mid-semester paper, and having an oral presentation due at the end of the course.
