Location: North Plaza, Fairfax Campus
Students will have an opportunity to meet faculty and staff involved in Student Success efforts, including the administration and management of Mason’s Beacon survey. Students will have an opportunity to learn and ask questions about the upcoming Beacon survey, reflect on strategies for success at Mason, and start their morning off right with a hearty breakfast.
Prior to getting breakfast, students will be asked to post on a message board (or write a message on a small white board) – Returning students will post tips for success at Mason, and First year students will post an academic or co-curricular goal for their first semester at Mason. Once they have written their message, students will be asked to tweet them, or post on Instagram/Facebook.
For students in a hurry to get to morning classes, to-go items including granola bars and bags of trail mix will be available. Packaging on to-go items will be labeled with Beacon survey dates and links to more detailed information about the Beacon survey. Fast facts from the 2013 survey, information about the 2014 survey, and Student Success Roadmaps will also be distributed at the event.
