First-Semester Seminar Class

Jan 31, 2017

A new component of our undergraduate curriculum is the first-semester seminar class. Created and organized by our undergraduate advisor, Suzanne Rosser, this class focuses on creating a welcoming environment for both transfer students and freshmen. This course uses team building exercises, introduces faculty to students through presentations about their research or through faculty mentors. This course has created an increase in the number of students that undertake undergraduate research, has given students the chance to form study groups, and the confidence to reach out to professors. The new undergraduate curriculum starts Fall of 2017.
