Complete a schedule and register for classes in their chosen major
Attend an academic advising session
Acquire more knowledge about student support services, the Division of Student Affairs, and the KSU academic experience
Gain a better understanding of the personal and financial responsibilities of attending college
Reduce anxiety about the transition to college life
Understand the necessity of students taking ownership and academic responsibility in their educational process
