Date Released: 27 October 2017
Note new session time is 11:40-12:30
The transition into higher education is a critically important time in a student's academic career. Those students who are able to adapt quickly and integrate into university life have better overall outcomes in retention and graduation rates. As as result, CWRU makes a concerted effort to promote first-year student success through the work of the Department of Undergraduate Studies; Housing and Residence Life; and the Department of the First-Year Experience and Family Programs.
During this UCITE event, Edwin Mayes (Director) and Kathy Petras (Associate Director) from First-Year Experience and Family Programs will discuss how to tell if a student may be struggling to adjust to the transition into university life. Faculty will gain insight into these early indicators of difficulty while also learning some general characteristics that define the class of 2021.
This event will be on Friday, October 27 from 11:40 - 12:30 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid). Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session.
