Yellowjacket Connection Program
The college journey is meant to challenge us in new and exciting ways. With that being said, there are major differences between high school and college. From homework and projects to the accountability of actually attending class, a student's first year of college can be a transition like non-other. The first 6 weeks of your first semester are most important and your experiences can make or break your success. In recognizing this monumental transition the Housing & Residential Life office has created a program to acclimate you to college by providing information significant to your overall development through the Yellowjacket Connection Program.
The Yellowjacket Connection Program take a transitional theme each week during the first part of your first semester and supports programming that can give you great information and advice in those areas to help your experience. The Yellowjacket Connection Program has programming each week related to the following weekly themes:
- Personal Safety Week
- Well Rounded Wellness Week
- Values and Choices Week
- Difference and Diversity Week
- Your Future Is Now Week
- Leaving Your Legacy Week
Attending the programs each week will give you a strong foundation for success, but that's not all. Each program you attend during the Yellowjacket Connection Program enters you in for a chance to win a $400 book scholarship to the Jackets & Co. campus store. The more programs you attend during the Yellowjacket Connection Program the more chances you have to win big book deals.
