Community college looks to ease future students in

June 24, 2018 by  

The transition from high school to college can be a big step for a student, and the SUNY Schenectady Community College has organized a morning of activities that can help to make it much easier.

The event, which is open to future scholars and their whole family, will provide an introduction to the social, academic and cultural aspects that are part of post-secondary education. The family members who take part will discover ways in which they can help to support their student and make this time a lot less stressful for them.

Participating in the activities will aid in connecting students with different resources and other supports, and it will also show how utilizing them can play a role in helping to achieve academic success. A variety of representatives of the college, including advisors, deans, student college ambassadors and success coaches will all be on hand to meet with the attendees and answer questions, and the whole event is free of charge.

Wednesday, July 11 has been chosen as the date for the new Student Orientation session. It will be offered at 78 Washington Avenue in Schenectady, and will begin at 8:30 am, running until 1:00 pm. A brochure printing company will be able to supply a variety of informative publications that can be distributed to those who come to an event like this.
