On Thursday, June 19th, 2014 we had a Google+ Hangout  on ways to avoid the dreaded phenomenon of summer melt!  Although school is out and you are heading to college in the fall, the work isn’t over! As a first-generation student going off to college, there are still a few barriers that may stand in your way that you may not be aware of.

Claire Dennison, Vice President of Programs at UAspire, discussed what summer melt is, the issues around it, and tips and tricks in which students like you, as well as your supporters, can use to make sure your get the support you need during the summer months to ensure that you head to college in the fall!

Be sure to be on the look out for another Hangout with I’m First !
