Understanding of a Hero’s Journey

Demonstrate your understanding of the hero’s journey by applying it to your own life.

According to Joseph Campbell, many events in our lives follow the mythological hero’s cycle. We experience the three major stages of departure, initiation, and return many times throughout our lives. After familiarizing yourself with the hero’s cycle, please write about your academic journey of going to college as it relates to the hero’s cycle. Be sure to identify the following aspects of the hero’s cycle in your story:

  • Call to Adventure;
  • Crossing the first Threshold;
  • Road of Trials;
  • Any variables experienced along the way.
