Students participate in this discussion-based forum to address specific issues adult learners often face during the transitional first semester at Cal. Course discussions and assignments are designed to coach students through the process of adjusting to academic life at Berkeley and all the complexities it entails. Through this class, students expand strategies for managing the demanding workload of this research university and build approaches for maximizing the opportunities available throughout campus that directly shape the quality of the re-entry student experience.
