It’s been awhile, but I still remember how overwhelmed I was on my first day of college. That’s why my staff and I are giving incoming freshmen a chance to familiarize themselves with Macomb before their first day of class.
A free Student Success Academy will be held Aug. 5-9 at South and Center campuses. Not only will it introduce new students to Macomb’s campuses and resources, it will also offer strategies for success through workshops in learning, textbook reading, note taking, time management and critical thinking.
Each academy is limited to 25 students, with preference given to 2019 high school graduates starting at Macomb in the fall. Students who complete the academy, will receive a certificate and earn one continuing education credit. For more information or to register, contact Career Services at 586.445.7321 or email@example.com.
If you are starting at Macomb in the fall, I hope to see you there. If a friend or family member would benefit from attending the academy, please pass this info along. It’s a great chance for new students to know Macomb before they go to Macomb!
