Successful first-year students at Kent State University are those who learn how to utilize resources, resolve problems, and prepare themselves to take full advantage of their time on campus. The Student Success Series helps to promote this success by offering workshops on the common concerns and questions first-year students have during their transition to university life.
Presentations are provided by experts as well as Student Success Leaders who can provide peer-to-peer information and guidance. Approximately 100 workshops are offered each academic year. Students are asked to select an offering that is of interest to fulfill a requirement for their First Year Experience course. However, students are highly encouraged to continue attending Success Series workshops that interest them throughout the year.
