20 Once we know something… we find it hard to imagine not knowing it. Our knowledge has “cursed” us. We have difficulty sharing it with others, because we can’t readily re-create their state of mind. (Heath & Heath, 2006, Harvard Business Review) What is common knowledge for faculty/staff, or current students, is a mystery for new students and particularly for LI/FG students.

21 May feel separated from family and friends in home community as a result of upward mobility and exposure to a new campus culture May experience “impostor syndrome” or unwarranted feelings of inadequacy They may see failure before it happens I’m ready for the fun of college! Have a glamorized perception of college “You Only Live Once” Not realize the effects on their future of decisions they make now
