LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Ivy Tech Lafayette is offering a new program to help incoming freshmen.

"Project Jump Start" will help transition new students into a collegiate setting.

Students will be able to attend various workshops and meet faculty and staff. Campus tours and other orientation activities will be offered.

The program will take place from August 19th to the 23rd. This is the week before classes begin.

"We have them on campus before classes start, making friends, getting to know staff, faculty, classrooms and all the different things that are here for them,” said Academic Support and Student Success Department Chair Kristin Oakes.

Student Success Chair Sharon Snyders added that the program will allow students to be better prepared for the upcoming school year.

"They have all the knowledge about themselves as well as the college. So they cannot be jumping into taking a full load of classes and also trying to learn the systems and the resources,” said Snyders.

The college hopes to include 200 students.

Applications will be accepted until all seats are filled.
