New Beginnings

New Beginnings
Fall 2014
August 19-22, 2014
The Office of Intercultural Life offers a three-day transition program for all multicultural students. The purpose of this program is to help new multicultural students to make a successful transition from high school to college. For many multicultural students, especially those coming from large cities like Chicago and St. Louis, transition to a college located in a small town is a challenge. For some who may be leaving home for the first time college could be a bigger challenge.
New Beginnings offers information and activity sessions to help make the transition to academic life in a largely unfamiliar territory smoother. The information sessions include topics such as: 
  • Conversations about  new beginnings, academic life and expectations for Monmouth College students
  • Managing family and academic obligations
  • Creating a culture of excellence
  • Familiarizing students with who, where, and when to seek help
  • Effective time management

Important dates:

  • Register online for New Beginnings from June 16 - August 1.
  • New Beginnings Students arrive August 19, 2014, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm, and check in at the Intercultural House (727 East Broadway) for your room keys.
  • New Beginnings starts from the evening of Tuesday, August 19 and ends Friday August 22.
