UNIV 1131: Student Success


A first-year seminar that introduces new students to academic and success skills to aid their transition into college. The goal of the course is to help students identify their individual needs, determine what resources are appropriate, recognize the faculty role in their development, and formulate a plan for an actively engaged and enriched experience from campus to career.  Experiential learning opportunities will be discussed, including undergraduate research, leadership, international engagement, community engagement and career development.  Students will understand how critical thinking and study skills can be applied to academic content, explore chosen majors and possible career pathways, and connect to activities and resources on campus.
