The Senior Experience: A Transition to the World of Work.
In 1997, John N. Gardner, Gretchen Van der Veer and associates published their landmark book, The Senior Year Experience: Facilitating Integration, Reflection, Closure, and Transition. One impact of this book, and the Senior Year Experience program within the National Resource Center for the First-Year Experience and Students in Transition at the University of South Carolina at Columbia, was to motivate student affairs professionals and career counselors to create a university-wide course for seniors to help prepare them for the major transition of leaving college and successfully entering the world of work. This paper outlines how such a life-skill course was designed and conducted based on 4 years experience of teaching the course at a large southeastern research university. (GCP)
