The first 100 days of college is a time of major change

It's exciting and sometimes challenging. This all new online course teaches students the life and study skills essential to successfully navigating this critical time

The transition from high school to college is full of unpredictable events. For students, high school is a known, safe environment with well-established daily routines, with parents, friends and teachers usually providing a deep support system. Conversely, colleges can be large, bewildering places, with routines, locations, teachers and friendships that are all new. Without trusted support systems, students at all levels of academic ability find themselves struggling to adapt to the volume of change in their lives, and to their increased role in taking responsibility for their actions.
