First Year Inquiry (FYI)
In the fall semester, you’ll enroll in the First-Year Inquiry course, a discussion-based class with a seminar atmosphere focused on developing your reading, critical thinking, and academic writing skills.
The FYI class addresses the shared inquiry: “How can one person make a difference?” by discussing a common book. The fall 2017 book is Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson, and you will examine the book through additional readings, writings, and a collaborative iPad project. Stevenson will be on campus in the fall for a public presentation and discussion. Find out more on the CEHD Reads website.
Learning Communities (LC)
In the spring semester, you’ll enroll in a learning community, two separate classes that are linked by shared themes. You will create connections in your academics and work closely with fellow students and faculty. Learning communities include introductory courses in your major to help you transition into your second year.
