Transition and Guidance (T.A.G.) Program

Involvement in a campus’ community and activities is one of the biggest indicators of student retention and success. We know how important it is for you to feel at home and a part of the community here at Asbury. Because of this, we have created T.A.G., or the Transition and Guidance Program.

TAG was made with you in mind. Approximately forty sophomore student leaders will be here to welcome you to campus, guide you through New Student Orientation, and help you get to know your classmates. Each incoming freshman and transfer student is assigned to a TAG group, which is made up of around eighteen to twenty new students and two sophomore TAG leaders.

TAG leaders are competent, caring individuals who undergo an advanced training process to prepare for your arrival. Not only will they make your New Student Orientation experience as smooth as possible, but throughout your first semester they will plan and prepare fun activities, be available for help and questions, and meet with you regularly to check in on how things are going.

"The TAG Program serves primarily to help new students transition into college and the community at Asbury. Through this program, students will see that there are so many people on campus who want to invest in them and assist them in any way possible to make the college adventure successful and enriching. The TAG Program aims to make every student feel fully embraced and excited for the years they will spend at Asbury."

"New Student Orientation is a great week of learning the ins and outs of campus life, getting to know fellow students and coming to understand a little bit more of what academics, student activities, and spiritual life look like at Asbury. During NSO, your T.A.G. Leaders will guide you through the week and will always be available to answer any questions you may have to help you get adjusted to campus life. NSO is intentionally crafted to make your transition as smooth as possible. The variety of events throughout the week will help you connect with others, get to know the campus and faculty and just have fun!"
