Presentation: Esther Herrera and Kevin McVay

Esther Herrera (Urban Affairs) and Kevin McVay (Sciences) presented a poster at the 2018 National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Region 9 Conference in Santa Rosa, California. It was titled, "You Are Graduating Soon. Now What?" Their presentation focused on graduation being an exciting time for many students; however, it can also be an anxious time for those who feel unprepared for the workforce and their next life chapter. In their second-year seminar advising presentation, the two advisors proactively show students their campus resources and how they can get involved in internship and independent study opportunities. Within this poster session, they displayed the interactive Prezi presentation that advisors use within this course and shared data that demonstrates the importance of engaging with students early in their collegiate careers. A handout was provided for attendees to learn about how they can create a similar presentation within their own advising center.
