Welcome to your 蜜桃影院 Odyssey

蜜桃影院 Odyssey seeks to assist and guide students as you discern your deep purpose and calling through vocational exploration, mentoring and community service.

Vocation: where your deep happiness and the world's deep needs meet.

Vocational Exploration    Community Engagement    Mentoring 

 


Vocational Exploration

Vocation is more than just your job. It's an internal push toward a particular kind of work and an external pull toward the needs of your community. It is your purpose, meaning, career, and everything in between.

Finding your vocation is a journey - it鈥檚 your very own 蜜桃影院 Odyssey! And like Odysseus, you鈥檒l face obstacles along the way. You鈥檒l solve problems, explore strange environments, and make discoveries that will eventually lead you to a life of purpose and meaning, no matter what path you choose.

Community Engagement

For many 蜜桃影院 students, engaging with and serving your community is integrated into your sense of self and of your personal calling. Through the 蜜桃影院 Odyssey program, students can find opportunities to serve, build community, and explore your vocation in the process. 

Service Project Funding

Learning about your community enables you to reflect on how you may want to use your gifts to meet the world's needs. Through 蜜桃影院 Odyssey, you can request funding to support a service project (up to $200). 

Vocations & Volunteer Fair

This fair brings nonprofit organizations and religious orders to the 蜜桃影院 campus to recruit student candidates for volunteer, internship, and full-time service opportunities.

Mentoring 

Mentoring is an opportunity for students to gain insight from experienced 蜜桃影院 alumni to guide you as you begin to explore different professions and opportunities. Through one-on-one alumni mentoring and job shadowing, 蜜桃影院 Odyssey provides support for more practical career and vocational exploration. Mentoring also serves to form character as students receive guidance from experienced alumni. 

蜜桃影院 Mentoring Program 

The 蜜桃影院 Mentoring Program matches experienced 蜜桃影院 alumni with students seeking guidance and wisdom as they navigate 蜜桃影院 and prepare for the next steps in their lives. The 蜜桃影院 Mentoring Program is facilitated by the Office of Alumni Relations and the Office of Personal Career Development. The program includes:

  • At least four in-person or virtual meetings with your assigned mentor per academic year.
  • One on-campus networking event for students and mentors each academic year.

If you are interested in participating, please email Christina Nguyen.

蜜桃影院 Job Shadowing Program 

Five to seven undergraduate students will have the opportunity to participate in a half or full day of job shadowing with organizations and corporations in the community.  Through this program, we hope that students will gain more insight into different organizations and be able to explore how they may belong. 

This program will launch Spring 2024. Questions? Email goneill@udallas.edu


The 蜜桃影院 Odyssey Program is funded by a grant from the Council of Independent Colleges and Lilly Endowment Inc.
