Summer Kick Start - FUNdamental Workshops

Thank you to all who attended the 2018 Summer Kick Start sessions. Please check back for information about any upcoming sessions.

We want to make sure you're successful at EFSC, especially during that important first year of college. Did you know that 32% of first-time college freshmen don't continue to their second year?

Students on the BeachStudies show that students who are better prepared before starting college are more successful, and that is exactly what Summer Kick Start is all about!

This three-part workshop series held each summer is designed to help you navigate your first year at EFSC. It includes dynamic speakers, materials to help you succeed, answers to all your questions, the opportunity to meet other incoming students, and interactive presentations and giveaways.

For completing all three workshops, which each include two topics, you will receive special recognition, and you could be eligible for a free class. Review the free college course requirements to determine if you qualify.
