First Year Experience
First Year Experience is a program series intended to address the unique needs of First Year Students at Beacon College. The series is a compelling and interactive time for First Year Students to bond through the shared experience of their first year of college. Each program, hosted by various professional staff members at Beacon College, will include learning that is informational and experiential and creates a space for First Year Students to:
- Build connections with one another.
- Become acclimated to the culture of higher education.
- Be introduced to programs and services that support their holistic learning and development.
- Be introduced to ideas and concepts vital to a healthy transition.
All first year students should attend each session within the program series to make the most of their Beacon College experience.
Orientation for new students entering fall 2014 is scheduled for August 14th-16th.
