Young people today have been criticized for needing adulting classes. However, older generations (but not your instructor, she's way cool) have forgotten that they grew up in a time when they were more likely to have a parent at home and may have been required to take a class like home economics that taught the skills we call adulting.
The first-year of college is a big deal. This CAT Community is part of a larger program, K-State First , whose goal is to offer students the things that research shows helps them to learn and to succeed in college. This class will offer practical and academic skills in a learning environment where it is safe to ask questions and make mistakes. And because learning is social, you will share what you are learning in a podcast and a blog so that others can learn as well.
Samantha Scrivo, Arin Beliel, Ethan Carr, and Jordyn Harris share personal stories and practical advice on having a successful first semester at K-State .
Erin Bishop, Community Outreach Advocate at Cats' Cupboard , talks about the history of the campus food pantry and food insecurity in our area, and several students talk about their experiences shopping at a local grocery store.
Tamara Bauer, Instructor in the Staley School of Leadership Studies, shares the history and purpose of Wildcat Dialogues and several students talk about how to have difficult conversations.
