It’s Time for Destination Kent State;
Meet Our 2013 Flashguides
Destination Kent State has returned! 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. 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 and support skills for being the parent/family member of a college student.
The program concludes on the second day when the students meets one-on-one with an academic advisor and creates an academic plan.
This year, advising and registration sessions will be held between June 3 and July 17 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 Kent State’s Office of Student Success Programs in welcoming the Flashguides class of 2013 to their positions. The entire university community has a stake in our students’ success!
