PROSPERAR at SUNY Orange has provided our campus community the exciting opportunity to amplify & apply our Guided Pathways/SUNY Orange Experience (SOEX) frameworks with targeted strategies identified to increase the support & success of all students, particularly our growing Hispanic/Latinx/Chicanx student populations, through revamping student onboarding, advising, course scheduling, & curriculum.
Student & Family Orientation
From registration to completion, our team is dedicated to providing our campus community with support that enhances your overall college experience. Through our Title V grant, PROSPERAR seeks to provide proactive, holistic, & inclusive programming with students & families in mind. Our biannual Student & Family Orientations create opportunities to connect with SUNY Orange services, from day one, to build a sense of belonging, community, & familiarity. Our campus onboarding & orientation processes speak to the needs of our incoming students, incorporating their support systems & bridging gaps that exist to successfully set you up for your first day.
First Year Experience (FYE)
Starting Fall 2023, PROSPERAR is piloting a First Year Experience (FYE) program that equips our students with tools for success, integrating career & co-curricular experiences into advising & instruction for students to develop a career path.
This transformative opportunity allows us to redesign learning experiences for students to engage with the campus in meaningful ways & introduce concepts earlier on that are crucial to success.
