    COL 102 Information

       • 
    What is COL102?
         • 
    COL102 is the Learning Frameworks of College Success course. It is geared towards first semester college students to assist them with adjusting to college and to enhance some of their soft skills otherwise known as non-cognitive skills (such as time management, motivation, goal setting, and teamwork). These are the skills that are not typically measured by standardized tests nor typically taught in a traditional setting. The COL102 course can help you build up your skills and confidence in these areas while supporting and increasing your success in your other courses (understanding the syllabus, test taking, note taking, study skills)
