To do well in college, you need three things: friends to support you, talented and caring teachers to take you under their wing, and good daily habits. We’ve designed a free, three-day experienced geared to help you develop all these things. It’s called Jump Start, and it’s free!
We’ll start with a visit to our nationally celebrated Charles W. Brown Planetarium. Over the next two days, you’ll bond with other students over ice cream and in two days of intensive practice in thinking and working like a successful college student. You will attend five classes on the shared theme of “Contagion,” as viewed from five different academic perspectives (Biology, Philosophy, Psychology, Climatology, and Sociology) and taught by five celebrated teachers in our college. The classes will ask you to exercise the skills of questioning, comprehension, analysis, communication, and problem-solving that underlie all learning. You’ll work closely with your teachers and your peers. And you will leave with insights into how you learn and with hands-on experience of specific learning strategies.
Complete the Interest Form at the link below and a staff member from the College of Sciences & Humanities will contact you if you have been accepted into the Jump Start program.
