CWRU | First Year

Take positive mindset survey by August 4

When you are making the transition from high school to college, research indicates that feelings of anxiety in a new environment is widespread and the main difference is that some people hide their anxiety better than others. This is a short essay exercise to encourage you to think about your past experiences of resilience and overcoming life challenges.

Your SAGES advisor will be a great resource for you to contact regarding your academic transition. We know that you will be a successful member of our community and we hope that this exercise will help you successfully manage your transition into your first year at CWRU.

The Positive Mindset Survey on your New Student Checklist is due Friday, August 4.
