Student Success Day is set aside each semester to support your academic and personal success.

What do I do during Student Success Day?

  • Explore topics and activities to support your success.
  • Participate in sessions that promote personal, career, financial, leadership, and educational skill building.
  • Make connections with other students, staff, and faculty.

 Suggestions to get the most out of your Student Success Day:

  • Use the planning sheet on the following pages.
  • Write your Student Success Day schedule in the space provided on the planning sheet. If you have questions, talk to your instructors or advisors.  Most sessions are 50 minutes.  Some sessions are repeated, but many are not. Plan ahead so you can enjoy your day.
  • Make appointments to connect with your instructors during the day – see how you are doing in each of your classes. Find out what you can do to improve.
  • Attend the keynote in the Commons at 11:30.
  • AFTER the keynote, enjoy lunch and listen to the choir in the outside hallway near the Tutoring and Learning Center math labs. Follow the crowd!

NOTE: Day classes are canceled; evening classes will begin at 4:00 p.m.
