Synopsis

On Campus approaches the topic, college orientation, respectful of the fact that for students, college represents an enormous investment of time and money, and for faculty, an understanding that they must feel well-prepared to teach content that is not discipline-specific. The mission of On Campus is to provide students with an opportunity (1) to experience and develop knowledge, behaviors and attitudes that promote successful college study and positive campus experiences, and (2) to appreciate multiple perspectives that reflect intellectual and cultural diversity within and beyond college. Students learn skills and strategies necessary to make informed choices, to understand their responsibilities for academic success, and to become independent, motivated learners.

Diane Fitton is a professor in the Transitional Studies Department at Monroe Community College in Rochester, New York, where she teaches developmental-level English and college orientation courses. In addition, Fitton coordinates college success and orientation courses offered each semester. Fitton is the co-author of two developmental writing textbooks, New Beginnings - Writing with Fluency and From Narrative Onward - Writing with Focus (Houghton Mifflin 2001). Recipient of the Dr. Wesley T. Hanson Award for Teaching Excellence (2001), Fitton began her long career in education when she started teaching English at Sheepshead Bay High School in Brooklyn, New York in 1969. After earning a Masters of Science in Education (Reading), Fitton concentrated in learning theory and study skills applications. On Campus - An Interactive Guide to College was first published by Pearson Custom Publishing in 2004.
