UACCM Students Have New Resources on Adjusting to College

UACCM Student Development offers workshops on areas that students often consider as barriers to be successful in college.

The transition to college and building a foundation for a career can be daunting for any student.

Many students try holding jobs while taking on a full course load. For others, school and family life can be a delicate balancing act. And sometimes students can succumb to procrastination. 

To address these concerns common on college campuses, UACCM Student Development has launched a new round of programming. “We’re going to offer four different topics that students indicate as barriers in being successful.” said Cody Davis, director of Student Development. "We’re very excited to offer students our programming this fall.”

The new workshops reduce the perception that students are alone in this way, by highlighting the many support services provided for students and ensuring that asking for help isn’t viewed as a sign of weakness.

The staff at Student Development and interested students plan to meet every week in the month of September, with attendees able to choose between two days that best fit their schedules. These Lunch and Learn workshops will be held on Monday and Tuesday at University Center, Room 210. Each session will be only 50 minutes long. 

Davis said that lunches will also be provided to attendees.
