This is an assignment to help you understand yourself as a unique individual.
This is an important step in becoming a successful college student. You may not
realize this, but all the students you see around you are unique. Everyone has
their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Everyone also has their own unique
approach to learning that works best for them.

If you approach your classes by trying to fit into molds that aren't made for
you, you're probably not doing as well as you could. Also by learning what your
personal strengths are, you'll be better able to choose the right classes,
teachers and even careers. In order to start taking advantage of your unique
strengths, please go to:
