|Jan. 22||Involvement. We know that an involved and engaged student is more likely to make it to their second year. With a semester under their belts, it’s a great time to take stock in what’s going on outside of class. This is the time when many students find their true place at Mizzou.||Involvement Fair, Welcome Back: Break the Ice Party, Involvement Ambassador||Advisers, faculty of first-year students, RAs and Involvement Ambassadors|
|Jan. 28||Decision Points Fast Approaching. Talk to students about: Feb. 1 FASFA priority deadline, Feb 6 Mizzou Housing Fair, Feb. 25 last day to drop course without a grade, Mar. 1 housing deadline, Mar. 4 Summer and Fall early registration.||Advisers, faculty of first-year students, RAs and Involvement Ambassadors|
|Feb. 4||Rebounding From a Rough First Semester. If last semester wasn’t everything a student hoped for, we’re here to say it’s ok. This week, we’re talking about what did and didn’t go well last semester. We’re asking if they have completed all their mandatory trainings, do they have a mentor, why is it important, and how do they find a mentor? If they are having roommate issues, contact their RA.||Advisers, faculty of first-year students, RAs and Involvement Ambassadors|
|Feb. 11||The Winter Blahs. Stress is inevitable, but it’s normal and can be motivating. De-stressing resources are everywhere on campus, make sure your students are aware. We encourage students to think about alternatives to alcohol or other substances (maladaptive coping) to relieve stress. Information to alternative coping methods located in “Resources.”
We encourage students to reach out if they become overwhelmed or feel the need. Regardless of who you call or where you go – the most important thing is to reach out to someone if you think you need help.
