You are invited to join the Department of First-Year and Transition Studies and University College at Kennesaw State University for the first annual Georgia Conference on First-Year and Transition Studies on Friday, October 10. This one-day drive-in conference will provide a forum for faculty, staff, and administrators to share ideas, resources, and engaging pedagogy to enhance our work with first year and students in transition.

Conference sessions will focus on engaging classroom pedagogies and best practices; assessment of curricular and co-curricular aspects of first-year and transition programming; the student perspective on the first college year and transfer experience; strategies for administering and collaborating in first-year programs and learning communities; student learning and success; and retention, progression, and graduation of first-year and transfer students.
