E-Source for College Transitions is an electronic newsletter that provides practical strategies for supporting student learning and success. Published
in March, July, and November, the newsletter and archive are available online with a free subscription.
Volume 17, Issue 1 Our November issue welcomes new editor Dr. Rebecca Campbell, and it looks at a speaker
series from Mercer University that invites first-year students to hear stories from
faculty about the challenges they overcame as students. Also, an associate professor
at the University of Tennessee is using expressive writing in her first-year seminar
to help students avoid the hazards of alcohol and drug use. Faculty at Rose-Hulman
Institute of Technology began assigning students who shared a residence hall floor
to the same first-year seminar section, and Ohio University is bolstering the partnership
between FYE instructors and peer leaders.
