  • Develop their sense of belonging on campus, as well as their strategies for achieving academic success and personal well-being
  • Cultivate relationships with faculty beyond their advisors and professors
  • Understand different academic programs available at CC and possess the tools to make informed decisions about their majors by the end of the academic year
  • Learn about off-campus and study-abroad programs, as well as grant, fellowship, and research opportunities, in order to maximize their time and experience at CC
  • Know how to find and apply for internships and how to narrate their experiences to potential employers
