Reflections on Rejection Week

Contact: Rachel B. Wood, 269-337-7183

We’ve reached a point of our academic year when many students are excitedly checking their campus mailboxes, email inboxes, and voicemail messages for “the news”.
*Did I get in to the study abroad site of my choice?
*Was I called for that interview?
*Does this letter from my dream graduate school say “Accepted”?
*Did I get that job?

Everyone—no matter their level of talent, dedication, or intelligence—faces rejection. When we are rejected or when we fail, we often feel upset and discouraged. We think, “this is terrible…what will I do?” This week, we at the CCPD are taking time to reflect on our rejections, and offer the chance for you to do the same. Often, we find that we learn the most from these rejections, and as we persevere we find the cliched saying to be true; that when one door closes, another opens.
