Community - Context - Counseling
The Freshman Academy offers students the opportunity to be a part of a
environment. Our focus on building students’ connection to each other, to their instructors and to the
college is based on coordinating several of the very
best practices from around the campus. These are
practices which are proven to improve student learning.
A consistent group of students and faculty will work together across
their classes, “linking” their curriculum and helping them to broaden their learning.
Counselors will work with students to help improve study skills,
understand college resources, and to plan their future schedules
Learning in all of their courses will be
contextualized around a
common theme or interest area, helping students to see how to apply skills across courses and disciplines
In order to be eligible for this program, students
must attend one of the Early Admissions Opportunity (EAO) events,
and they must be graduating high school seniors.
You may find out more about EAO and the Orientation dates at the
Counseling Center website.
Students who choose to participate in this program, and who complete their first semester, will be offered
priority registration for both the Fall and Spring semesters of their first year.
