KCC's Freshman Services is a program within the Department of Student Development that began in September 1998. The program is aimed at assisting freshman students to make a comfortable and successful transition to Kingsborough Community College.
Freshman Services is dedicated to students' personal, social and academic growth. We work closely with students through advisement in developing a mutually agreed upon plan which will aid in the identity and achievement of their educational, career and life goals. We foster an environment which encourages student growth, promotes self-sufficiency and academic responsibility.
We respect the rights and dignity of all of all our students. We strive to dissuade prejudice, endeavoring to enable students to learn from the differences in people, ideas, and beliefs. We teach students the need to show consideration for others and respect all individuals. We encourage the development of close ties and strong relationships between students and other students, as well as students and our staff. It is our belief that these relationships form solid connections enhancing our goals of a student centered environment.
