"First Year Experience" Conference

Johnston Community Colleges strives to provide new students multiple opportunities to gain information for success in college. As such, the College is offering for the first time a “First Year Experience” Conference. Attendance at the conference is not required; however, students are strongly encouraged to participate because the presentations will provide students NEW information than the previously attended orientation days.

Each student’s interests and needs are different. As such, students are allowed to tailor the conference workshops that best meet their needs! Students will select four workshops to attend. Topics will include, but are not limited, to the following:
  • Note-taking Skills
  • Testing Strategies
  • Balancing Family, Work and School
  • Success in Math
  • Paying for College
  • Time Management for Academic Success
  • Campus Involvement
  • Research Skills for Writing Essays/Papers
  • Transferring to a College/University
  • ...and much, much more!
Date: Thursday, August 7, 2014


Check-in: 8:00 a.m.- 8:15 a.m., Smithfield Campus, Tart Building Lobby
Workshops: 8:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
