When a high schooler graduates and prepares to head to college, it’s inevitable that they’ll be told that college is going to be the best time of their life. But what happens when that isn’t true – when who they are just doesn’t seem to mesh with college? For gifted students, this is often a reality. Common traits of giftedness such as introversion, impostor syndrome, perfectionism, and intensities, when combined with a sense of pressure to excel at the highest level, can make college anything but perfect.
In this interactive, discussion-oriented presentation, Trent Cash, a gifted second-year Eminence Fellow at The Ohio State University, will start a conversation about how these common traits of giftedness have affected his transition into college while discussing strategies for overcoming the challenges they can present. Join him to be a part of the conversation and learn a little bit about what it feels like to be a first-year gifted college student.
