Danbury Library is hosting a workshop for high school graduates who are going off to college this fall. It's titled “Transitioning from High School to College”. The workshop will be conducted by Tom Bisogno who teaches “Decision Making in Groups” at Western CT State University.
Bisogno says many college students have difficulties or drop out within the first two years of their degrees because they are not prepared to tackle the academic requirements, adjust to different teaching styles or make good decisions about other basics of college life like finances, lifestyle choices, class attendance and study habits. The workshop will cover the key areas which students and researchers have identified as important for success in college. Some of the topics include time management, attendance, studying, and plagiarism.
The program will be held Saturday, July 26 from 10:15am to 12:45pm at the Library. Registration is required online at danburylibrary.org, click on “Events” or call 203-797-4527.
