College Success Boot Camp
for First-Year Students
Being a first-year college student can be challenging. Knowing what to do, along with when and how to do it doesn't come easily to every freshman. The College Success Boot Camp is your way forward. Each boot camp is a 2-hour workshop designed to help first-time, first-year students prepare for college success. Even if you don't realize it, you have an idea of the type of first year you want to have and I'm guessing you want it to be great. How you approach your new college environment can make all the difference. Whether you are attending class in-person or virtually, the moves you make toward academic success are the same. The College Success Boot Camp outlines them for you.
During the College Success Boot Camp, professionals in each area of focus will share information and strategies for:
Making the mental shift from high school student to college student
The basics (syllabi, grading rubrics, grade trackers, time management)
Goal setting and creating habits
