You never expected to find yourself in this position. You thought college would provide clarity, not confusion. Everything up until this point in your life has been pretty much planned for you, but now you actually get to choose. And it’s scary not knowing what to do. Maybe you’ve looked around for reassurance that others are stuck just like you, but all you see are perfectly curated social media feeds. You feel lost trying to navigate this season of uncertainty. Everyone you ask is telling you what you should do, but nothing feels quite right. Trust that you are not alone. In What They Don’t Teach You in College, author Meredith Trank offers a guide to ease the transition from college to the adult world.
She shows how these times of uncertainty provide the greatest opportunities for self-discovery, letting you dive deeper and learn who you truly are. Through narrative and reflection, this book:
- defines this transitional season of life, what it looks like for you, and what it means for your growth
- looks at your beliefs about God, yourself, and your potential
- throws the “shoulds” of other people out the window and teaches you how to start digging deeper within to live in alignment with your wants, values, and needs
- explores the meaning of vocation and discusses how to make decisions that take you one step closer to it
- examines confidence, impostor syndrome, and how you can own who you truly are
What They Don’t Teach You in College helps you move through a season of confusion with confidence and embrace the opportunity within uncertainty. The post-grad years can be some of the hardest, but you can use this unknown time to discover, honor, and own your most authentic self.
