The Woodbridge inaugural Student Success Week was held October 20 to 24. Fifteen informational sessions by experienced professionals covered all aspects of a student’s life that are crucial to success, from health and wellness to finances, academics and everything in between.
The offerings included sessions by Dr. Keri Bowman and Mark Mannheimer on the Student Success Planner, Year Up Director Noel Anderson on networking and PNC Bank representatives on establishing a strong financial footing. Each session that students attended qualified them to win an iPad Mini or a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card.
An integral part of Student Success Week was a College Transfer Fair on October 21 with more than 400 students in attendance. More than 50 colleges and universities from across the country participated, including most Virginia colleges and the University of California, Berkeley.
