Thriving at Juniata: A conversation on growth and change in the transition to college

Wednesday, October 2, 2019 at 7:00 PM until 9:00 PMEastern Daylight Time

The transition from home and high school to campus and college coursework is challenging. Students are challenged to balance new freedoms and responsibilities, asked to navigate and entirely new geography and culture, and apply strategies for academic, social and personal well-being. It can be exhausting and overwhelming, for sure!  

It takes efforts from students, from college faculty and staff, as well as parents and families to help connect students to resources and opportunities that will facilitate a successful transition. Over the course of the fall semester, Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students Matthew Damschroder will cohost a series of webinars alongside Juniata sophomore D’Avian Clayton.  Through conversations with faculty and staff guests, parents and families will be: informed about developmental milestones in the first year of college; made aware of challenges and opportunities that students’ might be encountering on campus; and equipped with guidance for how students can take full advantage of the experiences and supports available to them. 

You are invited to join us Wednesdays at 7 PM (Eastern) to learn about your students’ Juniata journey, to ask questions and get answers, and stay in touch as the semester unfolds. If you can’t join the livestream, the video captures will be posted on Youtube following each webinar. 

Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed.
