Throughout my college career,  both as a student and administrator, I have been overwhelmed with the amount of information most institutions believe to be "common knowledge".  

The result?

The "College 101" Workshop Series

Originally, I developed this program for family members, but once I acquired my current position with the Academic Achievement Center at Texas State Technical College Harlingen, I felt it would be a greatly needed asset for our students.

This program covers ALL the basics of college, and ALL the specifics of TSTC Harlingen.  Students who go through the program are taken through a thorough explanation of 

 What college credits are
 How semesters are structured
 How financial aid works 
 How to read those pesky course catalogs
 And much more!

From there on, we provide them workshops on volunteerism, civic engagement, study skills, etc. 

The results? 

95% increase in college understanding! (from students who attended every workshop) 
*increase results from a pre/post assessment on general college/campus knowledge. 

If you are interested in participating, please feel free to contact us in building D-138 or via phone: 956.364.4163 and ask for any of the Pre-Tech Advisors.
