Multicultural Student Affairs Kicks-Off the Show Me…Success! Series

By , August 28, 2012 8:18 am

The Office of Multicultural Student Affairs hosted its Show Me…Success! kick-off event on Friday, August 24th.  The Show Me…Success! program is an initiative for all first time freshman and transfer students of color at UMKC.  At the Kick-off event, students were able to get tips and advice from seasoned UMKC student leaders as well as attend workshops on healthy relationships, making smart financial decisions, and information related to their careers.  Following the event, the Association of Latin American Students (ALAS) hosted a networking ice cream social and The African American Student Union (TAASU) hosted their Welcome Back Barbecue.

Show Me…Success!  will continue throughout the year and students will participate in  MSA academic check-ins and a series of workshops and activities aimed to support student success.  Active participants in the program will be recognized as Show Me…Success!  Scholars at the Annual Multicultural Graduate Reception in the Spring.

The first follow-up session will take place on September 14 and will continue to be once a month throughout the academic year.  Topics will range from a “Get Scholarship Money Workshop” to a “Career Assessment Workshop” in collaboration with Career Services.

Even if you missed the Kick-Off event on Friday, it’s not too late to participate! Any student is still welcome to apply for the program.  To fill out an application or learn more, stop by the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs (Student Union 319) or contact us at 816-235-6609 or  Join your fellow Roos to make this a successful and rewarding year!
