New Beginnings

Fall 2016, August 16-19

The Office of Intercultural Life offers a three-day transition program for all multicultural students. The purpose of this program is to help new multicultural students to make a successful transition from high school to college. For many multicultural students, especially those coming from large cities like Chicago and St. Louis, transition to a college located in a small town can be a challenge. For some who may be leaving home for the first time college could be a bigger challenge.
New Beginnings offers information and activity sessions to help make the transition to academic life in a largely unfamiliar territory smoother. The information sessions include topics such as:

  • Conversations about new beginnings, academic life and expectations for Monmouth College students
  • Managing family and academic obligations
  • Creating a culture of excellence
  • Familiarizing students with who, where, and when to seek help
  • Effective time management
