Decisions Determine Destiny

  • Decisions Determine Destiny
    Student Project: Student Handbook & Planner
    Coastal Carolina University
  • 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.
