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.
