Transition and Guidance (TAG) Program

Tag Leaders showing a crazy pose

We know the first couple weeks of college can be overwhelming, even if you’ve been to college before. That’s why we train forty sophomore student leaders to help walk you through Welcome Week, the Liberal Arts Seminar (a required class for all new freshmen), and the first semester.

These students undergo an advanced training and preparation process to make your arrival one that is smooth, hospitable, and fun. Throughout the first semester TAG Leaders plan monthly events, invite members of the “TAG group” to a weekly dinner at the Caf, and are present and available to answer any questions.

Through the TAG program, new students will have specific people eager to provide help and guidance during the first semester. Their efforts, along with those of faculty, staff, and returning students, promote student success and retention.
