Both take careful preparation, well planned strategies and hard work. Statistics tell us that many students never make it to their second year of college.

This presentation will cover 10 simple strategies that will not only significantly improve the probability of your success at RCTC, but will also help you in your future career.
Kate Wallace Do you publicly tweet? Post a daily blog registered to your name? Upload Facebook albums so friends of your 600 friends can see them? Screenshot Snapchats for later viewing and sharing? FRIENDED YOUR BOSS ON FB???? More and more employers (and others!) are checking public online activity as part of the hiring process. While you shouldn’t compromise who you are, it’s good to be aware that people are seeing what you put on the interwebs, because it stays around forever. Brought to you by RCTC’s social media admin and professed creeper.
Paula Carlsen and Trent Dernbach This presentation will include staff from both RCTC and WSU-R. The goal is to explain the curriculum and transition process, as well as the student services available for our Path to Purple students.
