Defining Decade book coverYour twenties are often as exciting as they are paralyzing. With your whole life ahead of you, it can be difficult to decide what you want and how to get there. Join ASSETT’s Student Technology Consultants for an interactive book club to help you navigate and make the most of your twenties. 

Based around the book The Defining Decade: Why Your Twenties Matter -- And How to Make the Most of Them Now by Meg Jay, ASSETT will lead a series of discussions and activities covering common themes in twenty-somethings’ careers, relationships, and mental and physical health. We hope to provide community, connection, and a framework for undergraduates thinking about making the most of their lives and careers during and after college. 

All four meetings will be held Wednesday nights from 7-8:30 p.m. on Zoom. The schedule is as follows:

  • Sept. 16: Virtual orientation meeting to distribute ebooks and exchange brief introductions

  • Sept. 30: First meeting, covering work, identity capital, the strength of weak ties, social media perceptions, and the customized life

  • Oct. 14: Second meeting, covering love, picking your family, the cohabitation effect, and being "in like"

  • Oct. 28: Third and final meeting, covering the brain and body, mental health, physical health, and how good habits will get you ahead  

Interested participants should contact Sam Kindick ( Free ebook codes are available for up to 12 participants. Interested students who may have missed previous meetings are encouraged to reach out as spaces may be still available or other accommodations may be made to include them in the book club.
