About First Year
Purpose & Goals
The First-Year Program coordinates academic and co-curricular programs and services for first-year students, including First-Year Seminar courses, academic advising, academic and adjustment counseling, and the summer orientation programs, among others. The office maintains a close and collaborative relationship with the Academic Support & Enrichment Center and faculty advisors of first-year students.
During the year the Dean of First-Year Students is available to meet with students on a wide range of issues, including academic performance, personal adjustment problems, and other matters of concern.
