  • Register for Alive

    Alive! is a two and a half-day​ program offered during the summer months designed to prepare you for the start of classes in the fall. Whether you're a freshman, transfer student, or parent, you'll find things to interest and excite you. All new students (transfer and freshman) are required to attend an orientation/registration program in order to enroll for the fall semester.

  • Smart Start Retreat

    The Smart Start Retreat serves as the “Corner Stone” in the building and implementation of the Smart Start program & community, every year! The process of trust, rapport, and the shared responsibility of student-success amongst all members of the Smart Start community comes into fruition through this foundational event. The Smart Start Retreat is conducted over a 24-hour period, including a one-night stay at a local retreat site. We anticipate staff and students will establish strong working relationships, that will impact the academic success of all students, in a special way. Participants will hear from guest speakers, take part in team-building exercises, and have fun learning new things and meeting new people!
