Taffie Lewis

The transition to student life can be difficult. New students must learn to balance school, work, family, and social obligations while tackling new academic challenges. Well-developed orientations help students fill in academic readiness gaps, bond with peers and school staff, anticipate and prepare for challenges, and fit into campus culture. This session explores the components of great orientations and the action steps schools can take to evaluate and evolve their orientations to better meet student needs.
