HOW WAS LIFE BEFORE COLLEGE AND WHAT WILL CHANGE AT UIUC?
We are inviting you to participate in a study of college adjustment among freshmen that is being conducted by researchers at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Boston University, Boston College, and University of California Santa Barbara. The study involves completing a brief, confidential web survey (link below) that includes questions about your experiences prior to starting at UIUC. The purpose of this study is to gain a better understanding of how first year students adjust to college – the challenges and successes that you experience. We will be sending out a follow-up survey in the Spring to learn about your first year at UIUC. To thank you for your time, we will raffle off one $300 Apple Gift Card.

Every year the Peace Corps recruits dedicated people to fill thousands of program assignments – with a special emphasis on applicants with degrees and experience in Education and English teaching. Education Volunteers team-teach or directly teach English, health, literacy, math, and science. Education Volunteers strengthen local capacity by training and mentoring teachers in primary and secondary schools, teacher training colleges, and universities. Volunteers work with teachers to improve participatory teaching methodologies, inclusion practices, classroom management, authentic assessments, parental involvement, and gender equality in the classroom. They also create after-school programs, clubs, and camps for boys and girls to promote HIV/AIDS prevention and life skills.
When it comes to student success, nothing at school matters more than the quality of the teacher at the front of the class. Chicago Teaching Fellows is a highly selective program that trains accomplished professionals and outstanding recent college graduates to become excellent teachers for Chicago schools.
