Congratulations, your student is about to go to college! This exciting new step can be confusing. In this four-day class, we'll talk about what to expect and how to prepare.

Class experience

This class is taught in English.
No matter what university a student chooses to attend, the basic information for adjusting to a new school is the same. This class will give students an opportunity to ask questions about what to expect and provide real information that may not come up at most new student orientations. 

Students will know what questions they should be asking at their individual universities before starting classes, understand their rights as adult learners, and have an opportunity to discuss any parts of starting college that they have questions about. 
I am currently working at a state university while working on my master's degree in Higher Education. 

In my undergrad, I worked as the student manager for the orientation program at my alma mater, as a peer mentor to first-year students, and as a Resident Assistant (RA) in the dorms. I have seen the typical questions students ask, and I know how universities might leave out information when answering new students' questions as a way to market the school. 

I've also balanced multiple on-campus jobs, an internship, student organization memberships/leadership positions, and full-time classes while keeping a cumulative GPA of over 3.5 throughout my four years of college. I have both professional and personal experience in this area, and I do not have to filter information the way a campus tour guide or orientation leader might. 
Homework Offered
All homework for this class will be optional work for students to apply the information they receive to their respective institutions. Homework will vary depending on each student's plans for their educational experience. For example, if a student is going to commute to school by car, their homework may be to find out what a parking pass costs for the semester/academic year.

We will refer to information sourced from United States laws on the third day of this course, including Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Acts, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
