What is a Student Success Workshop?

 

Also known as an “SSW”, our Student Success Workshops are designed to give a jump start to incoming students and provide helpful information, as well as to let the students know what other programs and services AVC has to offer.

 

The SSW’s have 4 sections.

  • Campus Life gives the students a more detailed look at the different clubs, organizations and student support programs on campus.

  • Financial Aid representatives give presentations regarding FAFSA, the online application process, grants, scholarships and alternative options open to students.

  • Counselors help students with their Education Plan, giving them an idea of which classes they should start with and where to go from there.

  • “Ice Breakers” are games or puzzles that help to engage the student, get them talking and working with their peers, and helps them start learning to think outside of the box.  This also helps the students make some new friends and gives them some familiar faces when they start classes.
