That would be too bad. However, there might be ways to keep a strong transition program even in lean budget years. Let me know if you'd ever like to brainstorm.

Yes I did, Thank you. I have filed our application to purchase 15 copies of the book. We plan on reading through it in our team planning sessions to see how what we are currently doing would compare to some of your recommendations. In watching the YouTube videos, so far we have created something very similar to what your vision is. We are in our fourth year of implementation, but due to budget issues, we may have our "Freshman House" dissolved due to staffing issues. If that is the case, I fear it will have pretty negative repercussions on our school.

Gary - did you get the info you needed for the book?

That would be great, thank you.

We don't have any official reviews. That's actually why I posted that forum discussion. I'm hoping some people will leave some feedback that can be shared with others. If it would help I could put you in touch with some other schools that have purchased the book.

Thanks for sharing about your school's efforts to prepare freshmen. I look forward to your involvement with this network.

Thanks for joining the Freshman Transition Network. The network is, and always will be, a "work in progress". Your input and ideas will play a big role in making this a useful and interactive site. Please let me know if you have ideas.

Be sure to read the "Read 1st" tab. I think that will give you a good idea of how to maximize this new network.

Also, please go to the forum page and click on the Introductions forum. Take a moment to introduce yourself to the rest of the users

Check out the "Your School" tab. This gives people a chance to leave information about and a link to their school's Freshman Transition Program. This can help schools connect with one another.

Consider "friending" the other members of the community. That will make sure that the community truly is a community. You do this by going to someone's page and clicking Add as Friend, which is beneath their profile picture. By friending others you will then be able to send out messages, ask questions, and share thoughts more easily with those individuals.

Most importantly, though, your input, ideas, blogs, comments, and questions will benefit all the other members. Feel free to become a regular blogger or poster. We're looking forward to hearing from you!

Thanks again for joining!
