Hi Rachel,

We do JumpStart workshops for students entering our developmental math classes.  They are offered the week before classes begin and include 2 parts:  a study skills component(the part they really need) and a topic skills portion-reviewing the math they need to know going into their next math class.  Our JumpStart workshops are well attended and data shows students who attend the JS workshops do better than students who don’t.

Hope this helps~

 

Thank you~

Subject: Academic Success Conference Name

 

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.

 

Thank you,
