Student Resolutions for 2021


A pie chart showing the distributions of different types of resolutions based on a Catamount survey.

We all know 2020 was pretty much the worst year ever. . . but what about 2021? We may have kicked off the year with a few rocky starts but that doesn’t mean the rest of it has to be worse. 2020 is officially behind us, (hopefully) gone forever and fed to future history books for entertainment. In an effort to bring some hope to these bleak quarantine times, let’s start small and celebrate some little resolutions!
