“I went to community college my first two years and did really well.  When I transferred to UD, everything was different.  I was living in the residence hall and the people around me partied a lot.  I was going to class and working and it was just too easy to go out with everyone else when I got back from work at night.  Needless to say, I kind of bombed my first semester.  I didn’t realize how badly until I got the probation letter.  I met with my assistant dean. She worked with me to set up a schedule, get tutoring and stay on track. I met with her every week that semester and then every other week the following fall. I still drop in to see her every now and then, but now it’s to share good news.  I graduate at the end of this semester.”
