U-Turn can help all students plan for success

uturnfall2016U-Turn, the one-stop shop for academic resources, takes place on Oct. 11, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., in the Lory Student Center Grand Ballroom. The annual event is open to all students on a drop-in basis; the journey from self-assessment to action plan should take about an hour.

While first-year students who may be struggling can benefit greatly from attending U-Turn, the chance to develop a personalized plan for success can give anyone an advantage, inside and outside of the classroom, according to Director Darrie Burrage.

“No matter where students are right now, U-Turn can help them reach their academic goals and grow to the next level of success,” Burrage said. “We encourage all students to attend, and all faculty to encourage their students to attend.”

Individualized plan for success

Attendees will meet one-on-one with a Navigator to develop an individualized plan, then visit the Academic Success Expo to meet with representatives from resources across campus. In addition to academic advisers, financial, mental health and career counselors will be among the many resource representatives from around campus available at U-Turn 2016.

“We can get them back on the good foot, or help them stay on the good foot, but we really hope we can get them strutting on that good foot for the rest of their CSU career,” Burrage said.
