Academic and Personal Support Programs
Freshman Grade Monitoring
- Freshman grades are monitored throughout the student's first two semesters.
- Freshmen are connected with resources to improve their academics, which include:
- Study Skills
- Career Exploration
The Freshman Mentors Program is a resource where new students are assigned a faculty or staff mentor. First year students are assigned many supportive University community members including an academic advisor, resident assistant, orientation team leader, faculty advisor and a resident director to name a few.
- The Freshman Mentor Program provides a unique opportunity for new students to have someone to talk to, to hang out with or to just vent.
- The Mentors in this program are qualified University employees who are genuinely interested in the welfare of our students and have that added ingredient that makes them particularly accessible.
- Mentors coordinate study breaks, informal outings and other social events made available to their mentor group.
- The mentors are available to our students in many ways to help them through that first year of college.
- A group of 30 to 40 first year students are assigned to their mentor during the week of Freshman Orientation.
