Connecting with other people is a common occurrence in our daily lives. When we extend our reach beyond our comfort zone, important things happen:

  • When connections are made, people believe they can be successful. Personal connections help contribute to an individual's sense of self-worth and confidence in their abilities.
  • When a person feels valued, she/he becomes more satisfied with college and work experiences. Increased satisfaction leads to greater personal and institutional success.
  • Initiating meaningful relationships fosters a culture of learning, caring and accomplishment. These experiences can help contribute to personal growth.
  • Developing relationships impacts your sphere of influence; people will engage with you if you start engaging with them. Friendships often begin with a simple "hello".
  • Everyone contributes to the environment. Creating and cultivating any type of community depends upon personal engagement. Each of us has the ability to make a difference.
  • Quality interaction contributes to better mental health. Giving and receiving feedback from others helps us feel better about what we are doing. It is human nature to want to be acknowledged.
