  • This presentation will describe the development and implementation of an advising model used to work with first-term, true first year students placed on Academic Warning in the College of Liberal Arts at Oregon State University. Often students who encounter academic difficulty in their first term in college will have progressively worse academic issues in their future. This model was implemented in hopes of stopping that downward cycle, to help these students identify issues (academic and non-academic) that influence their college experience, and connect them to resources on campus. This presentation is an exploration of how the model was developed, how it has been implemented, and its success so far. If you are in similar situations, hopefully you will be able to learn from this model and potentially apply it at your institutions.
