(STEP) Starz Transitional Environment Program (STEP) The Freshman Transition Project through the Starz College of Technology is a statewide program designed to help incoming freshmen make a successful adjustment into college life. Faculty advisors train a team of upperclassmen in a variety of leadership and facilitation skills. The student leaders then co-facilitate monthly “Learning Station” activities for all freshmen on topics such as decision making, problem solving, time management, active listening, communication, and relationship building. Freshmen work in small groups with the same student leaders over the course of the year to create a sense of belonging and community spirit within each small group.

CAREER DEVELOPThe Starz Transitional Environment Program (STEP) makes transitions easier for all students at Starz College of Technology not just for degree students. STEP is an intervention program to support students at Starz transition in the technology program since information technology is not part of the national curriculum. STEP redesigns the college environment to make school transitions less threatening by reducing school disorganization and restructuring the role of the homeroom teacher. The program does not require whole school reform, and thus is less costly Counselors help students choose classes, counsel them on school and personal problems, and communicate with their parents/guardians if needed. All students involved in the program attend the same core classes. Classes are physically close together to help participants develop stable peer groups and become familiar with the school.
