What does it mean to live a meaningful life?
Here are responses from students enrolled in my “Sociology of the Life Course.”
Cultivate a sense of purpose
Pursue strong connections
Don’t regret, just learn
Approach everything as a learning experience
Take care of yourself and others
Surround yourself with people you love
Stay true to yourself
Live in the moment
Make a positive impact
Pay it forward
Do what you enjoy
Bring good to the world
