COUNS 100 –Success Strategies for the Re-entry Student
This course introduces reentry students to the study of the educational, psychological, intellectual, social and health-related factors that impact lifelong learning, well-being, and success. Topics include: Motivation, self-discovery, creative & critical thinking, health/stress management, self-efficacy, study strategies, communication, campus resources, goal setting, educational planning, and career exploration. This 3 unit course meets the CSU GE Area E requirement.
The course was developed by Carolyn Powell, Counseling faculty whose passion was working with Adult Reentry Students. She is now retired, but we appreciate the many contributions she made over the years to the Counseling Department.
This semester the course will be taught by Connie Perez, who has worked in higher education for 23 years. She is a graduate of CSU Fullerton with a Bachelor's in Human Services with an emphasis in College Counseling from CSU Northridge. She also enjoys working with reentry students as I am sensitive to their needs and she feels that she can connect well with them and will help them in any way she can to see them to success.
This is a wonderful class to begin your college experience and guide you in the right direction towards success.
