Let’s face it; college can be scary especially during the first year whether it’s as a first-year or transfer student. We all desire to succeed, but sometimes we need help or have questions along the way and a mentor can be the answer. FAU’s brand new mentoring initiative is here to assist students by offering them the support that they need. The Mentoring Project (a collaboration between Student Affairs & Enrollment Management and Academic Affairs), specifically, the “Connections” mentoring initiative is designed to connect first-year and transfer students with a mentor who is a member of the FAU community. Departmentally based mentoring opportunities offered across the FAU campus will also be highlighted by The Mentoring Project.
The Get Wise success center will be fully staffed with well-trained academic advisors and coaches. A few examples of what one might do in an advising session are: plan for the coming semester, find resources on campus to assist in meeting your goals, discussing good time management skills, study skills and test-taking strategies, answering academic policy and procedure questions (for instance, ‘how do I use grade forgiveness’ or ‘how many hours do I have before I reach excess hours’, etc.). We can even assist you in calculating your current grade in a class by teaching you how to use your syllabus as a guide. The possibilities in advising and coaching are endless!

The Get Wise success center will be fully staffed with professionally trained and nationally certified career counselors from the Career Development Center.

Do you have a paper coming up, but you just don’t know how to get started? Come on down and discuss your prompt with one of our amazing writing consultants! Have you written the paper but you’re not convinced it’s your best work? Discuss your paper with a consultant and hand in your work with confidence! Not only will your consultant assist you in any stage of the writing process, he/she will also provide you with an ‘error log’ which will address written mistakes you frequently make. This focus on you as an individual writer will assist in improving specific issues you may be facing, thus making you a better-written communicator (a skill most careers demand). www.fau.edu/ucew.
