For Student Orientation or Bootcamp. 

Communicating college-level behavior expectations during orientation or in freshman seminars sets the stage for higher student performance and greater faculty engagement.  If students know what is expected of them, both students and faculty members experience less frustration, and faculty provide a stronger educational experience.  Ultimately, the authors aim to improve retention, increase four-year graduation rates, and help students transition speedily—through appropriate planning—into jobs and advanced degree programs.  College Orientation accomplishes these goals by training students to become the kind of pupil with whom everyone enjoys working.  Students receive frank guidance on the interactions and decisions most important to student success.
