I learned that you have to build the bond at the start.  Let the students know that you are there for them.  I plan on doing many of the activities presented in the module.  

What I have learned is each department has a role in retention. We have to demonstrate to our students that there is value in what they are doing. We need to be ready to listen to our students and be prepared to help them with their problems. We need to show caring.
