Multicultural Student Services to Host Transitions to Success Event, Aug. 24

Michael WadeFerris State University’s Office of Multicultural Student Services is hosting its long-time traditional “Transitions to Success” program to help new students successfully move from high school to college.

Transitions to Success is an annual orientation program that is designed to familiarize students with university resources and networking opportunities. The event takes place Sunday, Aug. 24 beginning at 1 p.m. in the Interdisciplinary Resource Center, Room 120.

“In addition to welcoming students to campus, Transitions to Success aims to make them aware of the expectations of being a college student and exposes them to important resources that will assist them in transitioning to college success,” said Michael Wade, assistant director of OMSS. “If they want to acquire that insight, then students are encouraged to attend.”

Faculty and staff specializing in transitional support will be in attendance to help students. Also, a diverse panel of Ferris student leaders will offer their perspectives on successfully transitioning from high school to college.

Transitions to Success is part of Bulldog Beginnings, a university-wide initiative to welcome new and returning students to campus, as well as host educational and fun activities to start off the fall semester.
