College Ready Intensive
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 Ready Intensive is your way forward. Each intensive is a 4-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 Ready Intensive outlines them for you.
Both the Summer Intensive and Winter Intensive take place over two days, with two 45-minute sessions each day, for a total of four sessions. Although the topics will vary slightly depending on Summer or Winter, professionals in each area of focus will share information and strategies for:
The basics (syllabi, grading rubrics, grade trackers, time management)
