FRESHMAN ACADEMY IS...
Community - Context - Counseling

The Freshman Academy offers students the opportunity to be a part of a rigorous and supportive academic 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 take the assessment test. You may find out more at the Counseling Center website.
