Through proactive initiatives designed to engage first year students with each other and the college, the Mount Aloysius Academic Preparation Program (MAAPP) is the foundation for a successful college experience at Mount Aloysius College. All MAAPP students take part in a two-day early arrival program, where they move into the Residence halls and make connections with other students, faculty, and staff at the College before other students arrive on campus. MAAPP students are matched with a MAAPP Coach and a College Success Student Mentor, who will work closely to guide students throughout their first year of College.
The group of students that go through MAAPP Early Arrival with you will become friends that will last a lifetime. MAAPP students have two classes together (one in the fall and one in the spring) and stay connected with each other and their Coaches through social activities throughout not only MAAPP Early Arrival, but for their whole first year.
What are the benefits of MAAPP?
- The MAAPP program provides incoming students with an extended orientation as they transition to college.
- MAAPP students take part in a two-day early arrival program prior to the start of fall semester courses.
- Students are able to move into their residence hall early, get acquainted to college life, and participate in a series of group cohesion building social events.
