First-Year Experience Seminars

Go beyond the boundaries of the traditional classroom.

First-Year Seminars are one of our core requirements for graduation. First Year Seminar course descriptions will be posted online prior to the SOAR Program. First Year Students will be asked to review the course offerings and using the online registration form select four seminars of which they have an interest. Students will be placed in a Seminar course and that placement will be shared at the SOAR program.

These seminars are offered as part of the William Atwell Brown, Jr. and Mary Brown Vacin First-Year Experience. In some seminars, a field trip fee will apply. If you have further questions about the First-Year Seminars or the registration process, please contact Dr. Andrew Dunham, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Registrar, in the Registrar’s Office, at 517/629-0217.
