If you’re still searching for the perfect friends to hang out with, reach out to your ConnectUp groups! Be brave and set something up: group exercise, dinner, a trip downtown. It might be awkward at first, but everyone is in the same boat. Your ConnectUp groups are a great starting point to making lifelong connections and will help you have a smoother transition to college!
First Year SpartanConnect Challenge
YFY challenges you to complete the minimum requirements for the Co-Curricular Transcript (CCT) during your first year! The CCT is part of the SpartanConnect program which helps you get involved on campus.
From there, explore the 6 domains and start planning what activities you would like to do during your first year. Want to learn even more? Check out the First Year SpartanConnect Challenge website. You can receive prizes for just participating in CCT activities! If you complete the minimum requirements for your CCT by the end of the school year, you will receive a “Proud to be a Spartan” pin and we will send a letter detailing your accomplishments to the Dean of your college or school!
