Student Success Seminar

Welcome to the Educational Support Program Student Success Seminar! Each Tuesday this fall, ESP will explore a variety of areas that are important for the successful transition into the college environment. Topics will include how to experience academic success early, exploring career paths, understanding different learning styles and how to make the most out of your experience at GVSU.

By the end of the Student Success Seminar, you should have a better understanding of the role and expectations of being a college student and young professional. Through your participation, you will develop the skills necessary to be successful academically, personally and professionally on Grand Valley's campus. Below is a listing of seminar sessions, locations and topics for this semester. We hope to see you there!
