Roundtable talk to examine support for first-year students

Faculty, staff and graduate assistants are invited to attend a first-year experience roundtable discussion this summer about supporting students in their first year at SIU Carbondale. The session is from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 10 in the Student Center Vermillion Room.

The session will examine the unique transitions, challenges and experiences of first-time-in-college students and transfer students who are new to SIU. It presents an opportunity to share concerns, discuss strategies to support students and learn about available campus resources.

Registration is not required, and participants may come and go as their schedule allows.

Questions about the event may be directed to Gena Albert, associate dean of students, at gena.albert@siu.edu.

The roundtable is sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs; First Year Experience; the College of Liberal Arts’ School of Literature, Writing, and Digital Humanities; Saluki Success, UNIV 101, and the University Core Curriculum.
