Katherine Annis Missouri State University- Bachelor of Entertainment Management and Psychology My name is Katherine Annis. I am an academic advisor at Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey, Illinois, and I attended Missouri State University for my Bachelor's in Entertainment Management and Psychology. My vision for advising multicultural and Hispanic firstgeneration students is to provide them with the opportunity to succeed. Advisors need to realize that these students may need more encouragement or information than traditional students because of their unique backgrounds. My hope is that retention rates for these students will go up due to helpful campus resources and more support from the college environment.

Shay Dodson Kansas State University- Bachelor of Fine Arts Welcome to the Trinity River Campus! I am excited to assist you on your path to collegiate success. I worked in higher education administration for three years in the Office of Admissions at Kansas State University, and have also served on the Committee for Diversity Initiatives. As a fellow Texan, promoting diversity awareness and advocating for underrepresented students is incredibly important to me. TRC has a diverse and talented Latino/a population and I know your time is valuable. As your advisor, my goal is to provide a safe space for you to develop, discuss concerns, manage your time, establish great study habits, chart your academic progress through graduation, and answer any questions you may have along the way. I look forward to working with you!

MEET YOUR ACADEMIC ADVISORS Janneil Frederick Kansas State University- Pre-Law, Women’s Studies, Secondary Major in American Ethnic Studies I came to Texas from Kansas State, and it is my pleasure to now be on your campus. I have previously done research on retention within the minority community as well as first-generation Latino students. In the past I have worked with students who are on academic probation. One of my goals for first-generation Latino students is to help prepare you to be successful in college, while being in a setting that may be foreign to you. I want to help you find a group of students that you can relate with to help you feel accepted and know you fit in on our campus. With multicultural advising I will be able to introduce you to resources, support teams and mentors that will benefit you and help you through your educational path.

WHAT IS ACADEMIC ADVISING? Academic Advising is a relationship between the advisor and the advisee that is built on trust and respect, and one that allows the advisor to help guide the advisee through their college career. Advisors here at Trinity River Campus are here to offer you more than assistance with registering for classes, we are here to help you find your passion, to find the groups and activities on campus that excite you, and to of course help you meet and exceed your academic goals. The advisors know that every student is different, and we look forward to getting to know you so that we can together discover what makes you tick. The advisors and the advisees act as active partners in this process, and we will work together to manage your time here at Trinity River Campus in the best way possible. We know how exciting, overwhelming, and possibly stressful college can be, and we look forward to working with you when you arrive!

MULTICULTURAL ADVISING STATEMENT Multicultural Diversity is sought out as a goal to achieve by every institution of Higher Education. At Tarrant County College-Trinity River Campus, success for all of our students is promoted, and achieved by the different resources our advisors provide for our students. The 7 Hallmarks of TRC-at TCC: • An unshakeable Focus on Student Success • Service and Community Engagement • Strong and Open Communication • Personal and Professional Growth • Multicultural Competence and Language Acquisition • Interdisciplinary Collaboration • Wellness With the student and advisor working together, here at TRC we believe that developing a strong, trusting relationship between student and advisor, students will conquer all of the goals that they set forth.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR FIRST ADVISING APPOINTMENT Welcome to Trinity River Campus, a campus of Tarrant County College! We are very pleased to have you attending. Whether you are a new first time college student, new transfer student, or returning student, this time in your academic career is very important in order for you to take an active role in your academic planning. Be proactive and prepared for your first advising session. You may be undecided, changing majors or beginning to explore your major or career choices. Advisors can assist, recommend, and guide you to beneficial material that will help you tremendously in your academic and career decisions (Steele, 2003). They will also discuss non-academic issues and refer you to support services such as financial assistance, organizations, and student counseling (Gordon, Habley, & Grites, 2008, p. 98-99). Your first step is to develop a relationship with your advisor. They will help you develop an individualized plan that outlines required courses and the timeframe for completing them. Your Texas Success Initiative (TSI) requirements will also be explained at this time. You will also work together to choose the correct classes and develop a schedule that is designed to ensure your overall success ("Texas Success Initiative (TSI)", n.d.). Your advisor can also provide assistance in areas such as tutoring and mentoring, as well as personal, academic and/or career advising.

1. Have specific questions ready to ask your advisor. 2. Review all significant materials such as General Education requirements, your major program requirements, and your transcript. Bring a copy of your transcript if you are a current or transfer student. 3. Become familiar with printed or online materials about the college, majors and courses. 4. Bring a list of courses that are of interest and any requirements you need to complete. If there is an individual class you have questions about, bring the class syllabus and any finished assignments. 5. Allow enough time for the session. 6. Take notes during the meeting and follow up on the notes after the meeting. This is to help you retain the information and advice and use it wisely (Gordon et al., 2008). Your advising session is a multifaceted endeavor that brings together your personal, professional, and academic interests. The more you are involved in the advisor/advisee relationship; the better equipped you will be to evaluate what academic majors and careers are for you.
