Synopsis

Communicates college-level expectations during orientation, boot camp, and freshman seminars and sets the stage for higher student performance and greater faculty engagement. College Orientation targets freshmen entering four-year institutions and is designed for use from college orientation programs until graduation day and beyond. It provides a roadmap for campus staff and faculty offering orientation programs to facilitate behaviors that increase retention, improve four-year graduation rates, and ultimately, reduce student loan debt. Students receive the information they need to adapt to college life and stay on track towards a degree-all the while learning behaviors that promote achievement after graduation. This comprehensive reference tool is written from an insider's point of view and has a distinct focus on promoting appropriate college conduct. It covers a multitude of topics that help students navigate the university system while learning how to adapt this information to their future workplace.
