Future Planning :: Inquiry :: Readiness :: Self-Discovery :: Transitions

Program Goal:

Research has shown that students who take part in extracurricular events at a university tend to develop a sense of connectedness and desire to persist at that institution. Courses in the First-Year Colloquium series will reinforce information about the University provided to incoming freshmen during advising and orientation by making connections between their class (as a microcontext) and general university requirements and expectations (as a macrocontext), both in and out of the classroom. In so doing, students will be able to understand the purpose of the General Education and the need for becoming engaged students at the University.
