The Freshman Seminar is a one-credit course required for all freshmen. It is designed to assist students with their transition to college and to enable them to grow intellectually and personally. Through weekly goal oriented sessions, students learn how to take charge of their education by learning strategies for time management, organizational skills, note taking, and about the many resources within the college. The purpose is to provide students with the tools necessary to be successful in their college careers. A very unique aspect of the Freshman Seminar program is that the weekly sessions are conducted by the student’s academic advisor.
The Freshman Connect Program is a conditional acceptance program offered to students who are selected by the Office of Admissions. Participation is determined by high school GPA, transcript, SAT scores and other criteria. The Connect program provides students with support services to strengthen their academic skills and realize their potential as successful students.
FRESHMAN SEMINAR ACADEMIC ADVISORS
Academic Advisors play an important role in the life of our freshmen. This group of faculty members and staff are specially trained to guide students through the sometimes complex advisement and registration process. The students transition to academic advisors in their departmental majors or schools in the Spring semester of their freshmen year.
