ACC program helps first-time students adjust to college

Posted

Students attending college for the first time can get help with their academic and career goals through the Arapahoe Community College First-Year Experience program.

The program includes a Summer Bridge program, new student orientation, academic planning, career assessment, AAA 101 Student Experience course and attendance at a student engagement series event.

Summer Bridge is targeted at recently graduated high school students and includes a week of activities, instruction and information. It is free and includes lunch every day.

New student orientation helps with the transition to college by providing the information and resources needed to begin classes at ACC. Students work with academic advisors to set long-term college goals and structure their class schedules.

AAA 101 introduces students to college culture and success strategies through a series of interactive classes. The course covers soft and hard skills necessary for students to be successful during their college career.

“It is amazing to see the growth of students from day one, to the last day of class,” Karen Browning, ACC marketing project manager and AAA 101 instructor, said in a news release. “They come away from the course with tools and knowledge that will last a lifetime.”

The student engagement series helps students stay on track and stay on track while making college connections. Events range from financial aid workshops to academic planning to personal budgeting.

ACC offers seven degree and certificate pathways, and more than 200 online classes. It has campuses in Littleton, Parker and Castle Rock. To learn more, contact acc.info@arapahoe.edu or 303-797-5637.
