It’s that Time Again! Destination Kent State Advising and Registration is Right Around the Corner

The June and July advising and registration program is a one-and-a-half-day experience that includes an overnight stay in a residence hall

Flashguides, a group of diverse and fun-loving students, serve as mentors to new students during the Destination Kent State advising and registration program.Twenty-two students make up this year's Flashguides classThe June and July advising and registration program is a one-and-a-half-day experience that includes an overnight stay in a residence hall. Students are encouraged to invite family members to participate in the program. The students explore important topics, including the differences between high school and college, and navigating the university and properly preparing to be a college student. Family members learn about essential tools for a successful college experience, such as financial aid, as well as survival skills for being the parent/family member of a college student. The program concludes on the second day when the student meets one-on-one with an academic advisor and creates an academic plan.

This year, advising and registration sessions will be held between May 29 and July 14 with a break the week of July 4.

The advising and registration program helps students make the all-important first connection to the university. One way students make connections is through their relationship with an exceptional group of students called Flashguides. They are part mentor, part ally, part cheerleader and part program organizer. This year’s class of 22 Flashguides is a diverse and fun-loving group of students who participate in the program because they want to make a difference in the lives of new students.

Join the Office of Student Success programs in welcoming the Flashguide class of 2012 to their positions. We all have a stake in their success!
