Freshman Orientation: Avoiding the Dangers of Destructive Decision Making

When we start college, it feels like we have spent our life driving a car loaded with passengers all telling us how to drive. We all want to be in charge of our own life and for many individuals this is the first opportunity to do just that, be in charge. The problem is we aren’t always sure exactly how to do that.  How do we take charge of our life and make decisions that will serve us both in the short term and the long haul. This book helps you learn to navigate the first year of college, by mastering seven key skills that will help you avoid the destructive side of making decisions.  Through personal story, K.D. Hardy (ex felon, author, speaker and motivator) and Shelley A.W. Roy (international consultant, teacher and author) tell how acquiring an education helped each of them to become a person of significance.   


Professional Development
Many freshman arrive at college eager for the first time in their lives to be ‘in charge’ without the hassle of parents, teachers and preachers telling them what to do.  It feels great and in the words of Martin Luther King Jr. many freshman think "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God almighty, we are free at last!"

Unfortunately according to the Department of Education figures for 2000 through 2006, thirty percent of college freshman leave in the first year, and an astonishing fifty percent never graduate. Freshman seminars are designed to help freshman make the transition from being a teenager to becoming an independent college student. According to TIME, magazine first-year seminars have entered the higher-education mainstream, with 71% of the more than 4,000 accredited U.S. campuses offering such courses. About 85% of freshmen take them, and the survival rate of students who take the courses is 3% to 10% better than that of students who do not.  

Seven key skills can help freshman be successful both in school and in life. In this seminar, participants will learn practical physical and mental tools to make it through the transition into college life.
