College students are
constantly challenged on a daily basis with the liberty of making our own
decisions. And each decision they make, no matter how big or small, ultimately
influences their destiny. Consequently, my objective was to conceptually
illustrate how the network of good decision-making outweighs the bad. Thus, in
order to achieve this purpose, I utilized the structure of a flowchart to show
how all of my hypothetical decisions were interlinked with an outcome.
In essence, the front cover explores a network of good
decision-making that escalates from one’s adherence to the student handbook in
addition to his or her participation at Coastal. The network stems from the
handbook to five healthy motives that drive a student to get involved:
exploration, education, charity, passion, and school spirit. These fundamental
acts result in growth that propels a student to a greater level of success or
involvement. By means of achievement, networking and engagement within the
academic realm, a student can ultimately perpetuate the character embodied by
their mascot Chauncey, the Chanticleer.
On the other hand, not everyone in college makes good decisions
pertaining to involvement. Therefore, the back cover exemplifies three choices
that could potentially prove to be an endangerment to one’s college career and
wellbeing. To provide clarity, these choices are drinking/nightlife,
inactivity, and electronically entertainment.
