Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Objective 1:

Encourage high school students to pursue a college education, recruit, and enculturate them as incoming freshmen to the collegiate and academic environment by raising self-awareness and teaching self-responsibility for academic performance.  Program students will demonstrate positive changes as evidenced by pre-post results on psychometric instruments.

The project will recruit high school seniors to attend TAMUK by serving as college coaches and providing "collegeknowledge".  Retention will be addressed by preparing incoming freshmen for the college experience.  Initiating assimilation prior to the start of the collegiate experience contributes to student success.  The program will promote skill development by active acquisition of study skills essential to academic success, demystify which skills are critical, and assist students in meeting their learning environments halfway.
