 Here are some ideas that I have used:

Simulations of exploration exercises where you have students go on a
simulated expedition and have to bring limited supplies and simulate a
disaster and what to do. this helps with group dynamics and time management.
As for career services, have them visit the career services department and
hold a resume writing and interviewing atelier that students can participate
in. For university involvement, have the student activities office make a
visit to your classroom. Also have your class visit your school's writing
and tutoring centres for help with study skills. simulations and group work
also help in study skills. Also I had my students keep a journal which helps
in noticing their progress. Hope this helps. France

I am looking for teaching stragerties for a freshman orientation course
that will include topics such as time management, study skills,
university involvement, career services, school history, and any other
areas of interest to freshman students.
