Please note that this event has already occurred.

First-year students: Are you ready to start the semester off right? 

Over the last several months, 84 percent of your fellow classmates responded that they were looking for more information on the skills and strategies necessary for success in college. The First Year Experience office hears you and presents the start of our Student Success Series, a year-long initiative giving you the tools you need to succeed academically and beyond.

Join us on Wednesday September 1 for one, two, or three workshops to get you in the academic mindset for the first day of classes. Each is a quick 30 minutes, full of tangible tips and strategies that you can use on day one in your classes, and a great way to connect with the Success Coaches in First Year Experience. Every first-year student is assigned a coach to support you throughout the year.
