Our Stories: Becoming a College Student 

We invite you to tell a story about your semester at City Tech. Research has shown that first-semester students often worry about their transition in to college and how eventually students become comfortable and find a community of people with whom they are close and feel they belong.

Please describe in a short story how you have experienced your first few weeks at City Tech. Aim to write 300-500 words and be sure to illustrate your post with examples from your own experiences in classes, seminars, lectures, study groups, and labs. What happened? How did you and others involved think and feel? How did it turn out?

We hope this process will help you think about your transition experience. Once you have finished writing please take time to read and comment on at least two of your peer’s stories.

To create your first post please click the plus (+) sign at the top of the FYLC site! (or on the banner at the very top of the page click First Year Learning Communities, then select “add new” post from the dashboard).

Once you have finished writing your post please select your FYLC faculty member as a category. Then feel free to look around and comment on your peers’ writing!
