Common Experience

Discover Your Strengths Banner

The Common Experience at NC State supports first-year students in engaging with CliftonStrengths for Students, an online assessment that measures students’ talents and sorts them into a unique rank of CliftonStrengths themes.

With a focus on how first-year students can make the most of their talents to achieve their goals at work and everywhere else, CliftonStrengths for Students is a powerful starting place for understanding the strengths that shape the way an individual navigates life.

By participating in the Common Experience, students have the opportunity to identify and understand their strengths so they are able to effectively utilize them as a student, leader, and professional. Whether in the classroom, within a student organization, or amongst their peers, NC State believes this tool can be instrumental in students’ continued success on campus and beyond.
