Goal of the First and Second Year Program

The formula for success in the first phase of college appears simple: make friends, embrace the academic demands of college work, participate in activities, and seek out people who can help in times of need. The difference between a successful beginning and one which is less successful than anticipated can be related to something as simple as knowing when to get help or finding someone who will listen at times of distress. The program clarifies the simple tasks and attempts to make simple the more difficult tasks of college adjustment. The program challenges students to work to personal potential and to discard any notion of mediocrity.
