Designed to ease your transition to college life, these small seminar-style classes cover a wide range of subjects and introduce you and your classmates to new ways of thinking.
An added bonus: your professor also serves as your academic advisor, offering advice on courses and extracurriculars before you choose a major.
Some First-Year Courses are residential, which means you’ll live near one another, usually on the same floor.
It helps you get to know your classmates outside of class.
Plus, group projects become easier when your classmates are just down the hall.
