Congrats to Social Science and Education!

Advising is a critical part of student success, and advising at Vol State has undergone some big changes in recent years. At the front end of the college career, orientation and those very first advising sessions provide a path for new students to navigate college. This summer, the campus moved to a new orientation/advising system called Campus Connect. All of the Divisions participated, holding division-specific advising sessions. Everyone did well, but Director of Retention Support Services, Heather Harper, says that the Social Science and Education Division really hit it out of the park. Or as Heather put it- "They rocked the house." Rocking the house apparently included a special computer lab for students set up by Grady Eades and particular attention to students led by Interim Dean George Pimentel. As a fun way to congratulate everyone in Social Science and Education, they were recently presented with the "Red Solo Cup Award." 

Don't get hung up on the name of the award or the incredibly expensive nature of the trophy itself. It comes down to one thing: helping our new students succeed. Kudos to everyone in Social Science and Education.
