University freshman experience requires attention and guidance to assist students understand and cope with academic life. At Zayed University these students begin in the University College(UC) where educators work together to assist them in a smooth academic transition to majors. The lessons of UC build students' abilities to think critically about global issues, to understand the scientific nature of the world and universe, to access the mysteries of mathematics, to articulate in Arabic and English the varieties of learning, and to grow and mature in their beginning years of University careers. Male and female students use the library differently, and that may impact their studies and consequently their performance, jeopardizing retention. This poster will present faculty, advisers, and librarians collaborative efforts in guiding students towards success and retention.
