University Advising understands that you as a parent (or other parent-type family
member) have invested your time and energy (not to mention your money), toward the
success of your family, including your now-college-student since the mid-90's.
That's a significant investment. We also understand that you know your child better
than we ever will, and that makes you the single greatest asset they have as they
pursue academic success. Now, because we know the university pretty well, we want
to make sure to partner with and equip you with all the tools you'll need as you continue
to support your student ... albeit in a brand new way.
Our goal at the end of RRO Day 2 is that students will have:
Registered for courses that will apply to their top major choices (Evidence of Success: printout and camera shot of schedule, reasoning for course selection
recorded in ARC and reviewed by another advisor)
Understood and articulated why these courses matter (Evidence of Success: reasoning recorded in ARC, parent-student conversation after
Articulated their current top candidates for an academic major (Evidence of Success: recorded major choices, reflective writing)
Identified courses for a first semester that will apply to those top candidates and
contribute to a healthy first semester (Evidence of Success: potential course list, reflective writing)
