The COR 101 Student Facilitator Posters showcase the work of more than 60 Student Facilitators who serve an internship each year with the COR 101 first-year seminar program. Student Facilitators develop a poster, summarizing a lesson they taught in-class to first-year students focusing on topics relevant to the first-year transition experience. Posters cover the preparation and research, lesson execution, and reflection and assessment that went into teaching their class of first-year students.
Posters are created from slides, like those that follow.
Importance of Sleep
My topic is importance of sleep. As college students, our sleeping routine is not being emphasized a lot and most college students spend their nights either doing homework, having an all-nighter, going out and so on. we tend to face the effect of not having a good night sleep the following day. People tend to get drained, irritable and sleepy all day and wonder why this is happening. it the effects of having less than eight hours of sleep. I choose this topic to bring more light and emphasis on having a good, health sleep routine.

NYC Marathon Madness
This presentation was about my experience volunteering at the NYC Marathon and how this is beneficial in getting that experience before going out into the real world, especially in the sporting industry.
Student Health and Wellness
In my first semester here at SUNY Cortland the biggest challenge I faced was staying healthy. The transition to college can be challenging in all aspects of our individual health and I felt I was most passionate about this subject. For my presentation, I focused on ways to maintain physical health, socio emotional health, mitigate stress, boost mental health, and cultivate spiritual health. For one of my classes, I also organized a tour of the student life center facilities for my students which beautifully tied into the lesson on maintaining physical health in college. I also focused on strategies to mitigate anxiety and angst in college where the environment is new and family is far. Maintaining our health is pivotal to academic success and happiness.
Love Yourself First
I revolved my poster around self-love because, in college, we tend to lose ourselves when trying to live independently. My best friend Sydney Hart inspired me to find myself during a dark time. She gave me the tools and motivation to work on myself.

Throughout this presentation, there is information regarding my topic, reflections from my students and myself, and preparation tactics that properly demonstrate the registration process towards freshman.

The Ups and Downs of Mental Health
Many students on college campuses struggle with their mental health, and although there has been light shed on the issue, it's still considered overlooked. On my first day of facilitating COR 101, I noticed that many of my students have struggled in the past or are currently struggling with their health, so I thought it would be a good way to connect with them if I speak about my experience with mental health at SUNY Cortland.

Preparing and Studying for Final Exams
I chose my topic because when I was a freshman, I looked up to my upperclassman for advice about final exams. I wanted to give the students some helpful tips, to help them perform their best. Additionally, with the current mental health crisis many young adults are facing, I believe it is important for all students to know what resources they have available to them and ways to help better themselves.
Mental Health and Wellness
This presentation covers components of wellness, stress management techniques, and on-campus resources.
How to Balance your Academic and Social Life
This poster symposium was presented to a class of first-year students and taught them about balancing their academics and their social lives.
Colorism and hair text bias
Colorism is extremely common in a lot of communities of color. “Colorism is the practice of discrimination by which those with lighter skin are treated more favorably than those with darker skin.”(n.a) Colorism is a huge product of racism in the United States, it has been use to uphold superiority within white beauty standards. Colorism is perpetuated in the media, in law, and in everyday lives.
Transition and Involvement on Campus
This PowerPoint goes over a presentation I gave to first-year students on how to get involved on campus and how to effectively transition into college.
Academic Resources on Campus
I used a pre-quiz to test the class's knowledge on the academic resources we have here at Cortland. I then gave a PowerPoint presentation to teach the students about them. To end, I had the students take part in a fun Kahoot based on what I taught!
Time Management / Balanced Life
This is a PowerPoint/Document on my lesson that I taught to my section of COR 101 to help them see how balanced of a life they have at SUNY Cortland through an exercise. Then there were questions and techniques that could help them become more balanced and help them with their time management.
Being a PE Major
I gave my students a presentation on what it is like being a physical education major and what to expect out of the program.
Getting Involved on Campus
Getting involved on campus is vital for first-year students as it fosters a sense of belonging and, in turn, increased motivation. Students need a sense of belonging and motivation to succeed academically. Not only that, but they need to feel that they have a place on campus for the betterment of their mental health. In my presentation, I gave students the tools that they would need to find their place on campus, whether that be in sports, clubs, or a Greek organization.
