The primary goal of this course is to provide students active learning strategies as they transition to the university. To do so, we will work on further developing students' writing, critical reading, and presentation skills, as well as introducing students to the various support services on campus.
In order to provide a context for this work, we will focus our efforts on exploring how students' goals and aspirations fit into the university setting. Questions explored will include, but are not limited to: What brings you here? Where does college fit into your short and long term goals? How can you make the most out of your time at the university?
To help investigate these questions, we will collaborate with various support services on campus, as well as explore selected readings on college success.
