College Success & YOU: Achieving Your Goals

For the Student:

Welcome to college! We hope you are enjoying your new campus and all that it offers. However, we realize just how challenging it can be for you to settle in. When we started college ourselves, we felt a little lost and had a lot of doubts. But we stuck with it until we figured out what we had to do to succeed. Throughout our careers, we figured it out a lot more through teaching and counseling hundreds of new students. In this book, we share with you many useful strategies and techniques to help you succeed in college. We are certain that if you conscientiously read this text and complete the exercises, you will figure it out, too.

Despite the challenges, most of us who attended college in the past envy your current status as a new student and the exciting journey that you will take. We wrote this book to help you succeed in your journey. We are cheering for you. If you read, understand, and apply the concepts in the chapters, we are confident you will achieve your college goals.

First-Year College Experience Conference:

The First-Year College Experience Conference is an ongoing forum where higher education professionals meet and share experiences and concerns relating to supporting student learning. Many of the attendees had the opportunity to speak with Malcolm and Sue and listen to their story about the book and how it would be a beneficial for First-Year seminars and classes. The hash-tag (#) for the conference was #FYE14. This allowed attendees to join in the conversation, via social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc.) and see what people were talking about (from break out sessions to booths taking pictures) and allowed for a information to be shared through multiple ways.
