Thomas Nelson Community College will host The Ultimate Road Trip: Campus2Career, a free success presentation for first-year college students beginning at 8:45 a.m. on Friday, May 18 at the Mary T. Christian Auditorium on the College’s Hampton campus. This presentation is part of the College’s new Gators Orientation Sessions for new students who are entering their first semester at TNCC. These sessions are designed to provide new students with useful information that can help increase their academic success.

The Ultimate Road Trip program emphasizes the importance of academics, time management, setting goals and maximizing opportunities both in college and in future careers.  “Currently, only 75 percent of college freshmen progress to their sophomore year;” said JR Cifani, Vice President of Making It Count, “Couple that with the fact that only 50 percent of students entering college will graduate within five years and the importance of the program becomes very clear.  We are providing students with a map to realize their goals and ambitions.” Jean Fedora of Making it Count will be giving a presentation to the participants.
