The College Opportunity Program (COP) has successfully assisted freshman students with their transition to college for more than 25 years.
This year, we have introduced a brand new component of the program. For the first time, COP students (who live on campus) may be assigned to special housing in our residence halls and have the chance to participate in the Freshman Academic Success and Transition (FAST) Living Learning Community. This living learning community will allow 40 students to live and study together as well as the opportunity to participate in special activities. Studentsí applications for FAST will be considered on a first come, first served basis for the coming academic year.
The Freshman Academic Success and Transition (FAST) Living Learning Community will be housed in Pine Residence Hall. This means that students who are selected for FAST will be guaranteed housing in Pine Hall, which is a premier location on campus. In addition, FAST students will have an academic mentor who will meet with them regularly. This mentor will provide support and advice, host study sessions, and lead academic skills workshops.
FAST students will also attend performances and cultural events on campus, have social gatherings, and participate in a community service project together. All of these activities will allow students to develop essential relationships and skills for a successful college experience.
To be considered for the FAST Living Leaning Community, students must be enrolled in the College Opportunity Program, and eligible students will receive an invitation.
