Hi Holly! I currently am unable to use audio and video, so I'm Jaimie Engle -- Asst. Dir. of Academic Advising for Bio and Neuro students at DePaul University. I'm current Chair of the NACADA Small Colleges & Universities Advising Community, Common Reading & Evaluations Chair for the NACADA Region 5 20202 and 2021 conferences, and Vice Pres/Pres Elect for ILACADA! I attended because I think you're amazing, but haven't previously had the chance to attend one of your presentations.

best intervention methods/practice for transfer students - what are some insightful critical factors for retention
Brittany McElroy
20:26
@SIUC 4yr in Automotive Technology, work with both first year and transfers. Would like to make the transfer process smoother!
Tina Burke
21:00
I expect to light a fire under my transfer students and to become more independent after leaving the freshman sophomore advising model and to learn best practices for intervention that is not too intrusive
Jennifer Koehne (Coney)
21:56
4 year. General Advising. Work with all populations. New to my role this year is working as liason with campus housing. Freshman Hall and Cougar Village (family and non-traditional) Master's project was transfer student related. Always looking for ideas to better support/ work with transfer students.
Rachel Jantz
27:01
Yes, I’ve done these conversations, but our Transfer Admissions Counselors do most of these conversations.
Autumn Wetzler
27:08
Yes, we do a lot of this for our educational programs to make sure students are eligible to apply
Dena Joy Lawrence
27:32
Yes, when I was an advisor I did both.
Ainka Clepper-Harold Washington College
27:44
At CCC-Only in the special guaranteed admission transfer programs like DAPP and GAT...
Emily Cook
28:17
We definitely do pre-admission advisement. we have arrangements with many community colleges throughout the state
Kerri O'Shea - GSU

smoother transition for students into upper division coursework.

Prevents students from having to sit out a year due to unmet requirements to enter a program
Emily Cook

similar for our program
M
32:24
Yes, since I advise for selective fall admittance only programs, students must have specific classes we look at for selection.

what my daughter is looking to transfer to Columbia from Harold Washington
Jennifer Koehne (Coney)
33:13
Students often need pre requisites and testing to register for courses (MATH). Not having those scores blocks students from registering for recommended/required first semester courses. Not registering for the class may put them "behind" a full semester or year.
Ivanovich Vargas
33:46
^^ I completely agree Jennifer. Especially those math courses.
Jennifer Koehne (Coney)
35:53
Major discussion is extremely important. So many times students are adamant about engineering majors but realize soon after classes start that they really don't understand what the curriculum will require. Student has never considered any other major even though they really need to transition to a different major. Often direct students to curriculum guides and the Career Development Center for more discussion.

all the time!

Students with goals of medical school or law school can take several different paths.
Jaimie Engle
38:11
For sure! Constantly clarifying for students that they can be "pre-med" with a variety of majors -- not just Bio or Health Sciences. Study whatever interests you most while still completing your med school pre-reqs!
ndalaly
41:58
I do it!

I feel the culture at GSU supports doing what is best for the students. I advise on secondary education programs(amongst many others) so I have to have these talks. I am thankful I do not feel sensor in that aspect.
Laura Morgan
43:39
No problems. We just help students seek new information. No pressure on them, just showing them other opportunities and encourage them to have a conversation with the advisor or department head.

Jennifer Koehne (Coney)
48:26
I find that sometimes students are very committed to a major but do not really understand what will be required academically. I find that many new college students have been raised in a culture that tells them "they can do anything". I do believe in encouraging students but sometimes it is necessary to have the conversation that the major that they "want" to do is not realistic for them and their ability. These are never easy conversations and sometimes we deal with devastated students. It takes a lot of energy and resources to help them find their way.
Jaimie Engle
48:29
Haha! Holly advising for ag is almost as crazy as me advising for BIO and NEU students (I am NO scientist!)
Rachel Jantz
51:15
Could have helped narrow the student’s focus
Robert Alford
51:49
a better conversation about what her career goals are...
Myriah Benner-Coogan
51:52
Could have asked "What do you see yourself doing for a career? What makes you happy?"
Dena Joy Lawrence
52:14
possible interest in a minor
Tracy Warner
52:51
Gives them a connection to the university, can talk about the transition issues and how to work around them, a timeline to graduation.
Autumn Wetzler
53:17
What is all on your plate? What scholarships have you applied that may help lighten your work load? Here are resources for you...
Dena Joy Lawrence
53:48
Thought so!! That's another thing we have in common. :)
Emily Cook
54:31
We have to emphasize the rigor of our teacher education program for all new and potential majors. SIU has exploratory advisors to help undecided students
Myriah Benner-Coogan
54:32
I like that question, Autumn..."what is all on your plate?" That can really be an opener to getting to know the student and what they might be struggling with.
Robert Alford
55:45
I would open the conversation to better understand what their careers goals are...how specific are they with those goals
Dena Joy Lawrence
55:58
Ooh - I'm sorry; I need to hop off. Great session. Hope to see you this afternoon. :)
Tracy Warner
56:03
What career exploration have they done? So what specific jobs are they interested in that field.
Jennifer Koehne (Coney)
56:51
At SIUE we have a great Career Development Center. I refer students there often.
Autumn Wetzler
56:55
What desire in a future work place?
Robert Alford
57:34
then I would talk about the struggles in Cal and how important they are with the program...if they don't like calc then I might try something else to secure a better future
Tracy Warner
57:39
We have a lot of information at our Career Services they can explore even before being a student.
Erin Volk
58:28
We are a small school and do not have a separate career services. We recommend students start with a career interest survey that links what they like to do, subject in schools they like, and personality qualities to career clusters.
Autumn Wetzler

Sammy seems to have a strength in Biology. There are many options that lead to the same career path. Check out the occupational handbook
