During your first semester, you'll take a First-Year Experience Course that focuses on transitioning to college life and learning about our campus. The class sizes are small to encourage you to make connections with other First-Year students, and will give you an opportunity to really get to know your professors. Course content will include a focus on academic success, campus engagement, and making meaning of your college experience with specific learning objectives in areas of critical thinking, communication, and intercultural knowledge.
There are many different types of courses to choose from and you'll have a chance to indicate your preferences when you complete your steps in the New Student Menu. Some of these courses and programs are major-specific, and others are based on our general education requirements, cohorts, or special interests.
