The Thrive Center

The Thrive Center for Learning, Calling, and Career exists to educate students for academic success and to lead purposeful lives. Our goal is to help students become proactive learners who understand the skills they have and how to build on them. We also aim to help students develop a clear sense of identity, participate in a wide variety of experiences to discover and affirm a sense of purpose, and be prepared to enter job search processes.
