First 40 refers to the first 40 days of each semester, which are particularly critical from a retention standpoint. Student Affairs and Academic Affairs are committed to ensuring students have every opportunity for engagement at Middle Georgia State University.
The Office of Student Life is creating a calendar of events which includes First 40 events for spring semester. We are extending an invitation to any campus and any office interested in collaborating to make this calendar truly representative of the University.
Explore the events, programs and/or activities which you do or sponsor regularly every semester. There’s no need to create new events unless you truly want to do that. The goal is to bundle all campus events and include them in the First 40 calendar.
For the spring semester, look at your events that occur between January 8 and February 16, 2016. Including your event is as simple as forwarding all event information to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday, December 4th, 12 noon. The goal is to have the calendars printed and ready for the start of the new semester.
