Connecting to the Grove (CTG) funded by the King Chavez-Parks Initiative, Department of Labor and Economic Growth, is designed to support first and second-year students in making the transition and adjustment to college life. CTG serves as a central resource for first and second year students.
Through workshops, activities, events and access to various campus resources, we hope to build a foundation for all program participants. Our overall goal is to strengthen and improve students’ complete college experience (which includes academic, professional, personal, and social development) resulting in graduation from Marygrove College.
The first two years of college can be difficult for many students. Adjusting to a new environment, meeting new people, and the rigorous academic load can be overwhelming and promote anxieties, loneliness, and concerns. Building a learning community with other CTG participants while meeting lifelong friends, will enhance your academic success. The courses you take and the people you get to know will contribute to your success at Marygrove college and beyond. CTG will support you in maximizing your first and second year at Marygrove College.
Learning a new environment, adjusting to your course load, and meeting new people can be overwhelming for new students. You will be paired with a mentor who shares similar professional and academic fields of interest who will help support your transition to the Marygrove Community.
BEST OF ALL, THE PROGRAM IS COMPLETELY FREE TO YOU!
