Main description

Jerry Pattengale’s The Purpose-Guided Student: Dream to Succeed helps students to find their way, and to be excited about doing so! Through connecting class work to life passions, Pattengale helps students to persist to graduation and beyond. The Purpose-Guided Student has a practical and engaging “big picture approach” that helps students “to create dreams stronger than their struggles,” and to develop intrinsic motivation. Engaging students in discussions about important questions relative to their future and capitalizing on the many classes and campus experiences students face, The Purpose-Guided Student motivates students find their passion and succeed in college and beyond.
