Academic Support Services
Students receive assistance in establishing and refining study and test-taking skills through workshops, study halls, tutoring sessions, and special classes. Through CARE's Tutorial Lab, students have access to free tutoring service in gateway undergraduate courses.
Campus Survival Skills
Students are introduced to various campus and student support services and will learn effective techniques for time management, money management, registration, selecting majors, realistic course loads, personal safety and security, and other challenges that may exist in the campus environment.
Students are assigned to academic and peer advisors who will guide them through their early transition into the university. Program participants will receive their academic advising by CARE until they complete liberal studies requirements and enter a major program of study.
Students are exposed to the rich cultural diversity that characterizes the university community , which includes an introduction to a variety of social, service and leadership opportunities on campus and in the local community.
Advocacy and Support Services Beyond the Summer
Students will continue their participation with CARE throughout their enrollment at FSU. CARE staff will continue to support and advocate on behalf of SBP participants as needed while they complete their undergraduate education. The CARE office is available as a surrogate â€œhome baseâ€ for many students who are leaving home and becoming independent for the first time in their lives.
