SLS 1122 New Student Experience

Greetings! I'm Professor Gaye V. Simpkins, part of the New Student Experience faculty on the West Campus. New Student Experience courses along with the other "Student Life Skills" success courses are awesome and very valuable!

The New Student Experience class focus on six student-centered outcomes known as the 6 Ps: Purpose, Pathway, Plan, Preparation, Personal Connection and Place.

Student Life Skill courses empower you to learn and apply strategies for success in college and life. Some of the core competencies are career goals, creating your education plan, critical thinking, effective communication, personal goals, self-discovery, study strategies and time management.

In essence, it will assist you in finding your purpose.
