Self Assessment

Getting to know yourself—your interests, your skills, and your values, is the first step toward deciding on a major and a career.  Personal exploration can also play a key role in student success.  By identifying and capitalizing on strengths and recognizing and learning strategies for minimizing barriers, students become better positioned to achieve personal, academic, and professional goals.

Below is a self-assessment tool that we recommend to get you started on your journey.  For a more in-depth evaluation of your needs and goals, please contact the success@tulane.edu to set up a meeting with a professional Success Coach.

VIA Character Strengths Survey  
The VIA Survey is a psychometrically validated personality test that measures an individual’s character strengths. Character strengths are viewed as our positive personality in that they are our core capacities for thinking, feeling, and behaving in ways that can bring benefit to us and others.
