We call our series of workshops "BOSS," for Beginning of Semester Success. The tagline is, "Be a BOSS!" The workshops have names like, "Control Your College Destiny" and "Crack Your Science Course."
We are going to offer a conference the weekend before fall classes begin to help students start their academic year with information and strategies that will help them be successful academically, socially, and personally. We are targeting mainly first year students, but all students are welcome to attend. The conference will include team building activities and breakout sessions on a variety of topics such as study skills, financial aid, resources, etc.
Does anyone else offer this initiative on your campus? If so, what do you call it? We were planning on calling it The Academic Success Conference and have been asked to explore options that may be a little catchier to students.
