WORKSHOP TITLE: The Top 10 Thins No One Tells You About

DESCRIPTION: This workshop balances a realistic and humorous look at dispelling myths about attending college while letting students know that some issues are universal for all students.  The presenter combines research with anecdotal evidence based on her own experience and that with her students.

Presenter:  Diana C. Blauvelt, Assistant Professor, English Department

GOALS: The goals of the workshop are to help students separate the realities and myths of attending college, and to explain to students the need for self-motivation, hard-work and responsibility in order to achieve their own level of success.

1. Students will learn that college students everywhere sometimes experience the lows and highs of attending college.

2. Students will understand that success is different for everyone.

Students will become aware that their college experience is shaped by their own goals.
