Make a Splash! Transition Orientees into Campus Leaders:
New Student Orientation acts as the diving board in which each student can make a big splash in their academic and student life experience. The presenters will focus on how orientation can keep your students in motion throughout their educational journey by connecting them to college resources leading to institutional retention. They will look at innovative ways to ensure each orientation session encourages students to be involved in their college community from the start.
