This guidebook is designed to help you navigate through four years of college as you search for meaning, fulfillment, purpose, and prepare for life after college. This guide offers advice from faculty, staff, and students across Spring Hill who want to help you discover who you are, what you value, and the gifts you can share with the world. Throughout this guide, you will find a exercises that ask you to prepare for the world of work alongside exercises that dig deep into your inner self to find meaning. As your vocation is more than your career, this guide will help you to discover where you will find purpose and meaning not only in your work, but in all aspects of your life. You will track your accomplishments, reflect on your experiences, and make a plan to get the most out of your time at Spring Hill College.

Engaging with the guidebook will help you develop relationships with campus faculty and staff. We encourage you to step outside of your comfort zone to meet new people and learn about someone else’s vocational story. If you are struggling to find an appropriate faculty or staff member to talk with, we have a list of individuals who are excited to have these conversations with you on the Mentor List.
