First Year Career Discovery Program

Class: SAS 098, Section 04

Quarter: Fall 2018

Mentor Name & Email: Meghan Klasic,

Welcome to the Career Discovery Group Program (CDG)! The CDG program for First Year students is a year-long program broken into three quarters: Fall and Winter quarters in the classroom and Spring quarter through field trips.

The Fall 2018 quarter course is designed to build a network of curious and unique individuals (that’s you!). This course will introduce you to the wide range of resources available at UC Davis, while also providing an organized location to learn more about yourself, your educational path and goals, your understanding of the world, and so much more.

We will be exploring a number of topics during Fall 2018 including:

(1) Academic advising in the College of Agriculture and Environmental Science (CA&ES)

(2) Accessing campus resources for academic success

(3) Developing academic confidence (and adjusting to quarters!)

(4) Developing an academic plan

(4) Understanding the Code of Academic Conduct and Principles of Community

(5) Investigating your personal skills, interests, abilities

(6) Identifying connections to the broader community of scholars at UC Davis

As your mentor, I am here to support you and help guide you through your first quarter at UC Davis. I encourage you to be an active participant in class - ask questions, engage with your classmates, and stay curious. I look forward to getting to know you over the next 10 weeks (and hopefully over the next year!)
