FS 101 Freshman Seminar

Prerequisite: Eligibility for ENG 088

This first-year student success course focuses on matters related to the transition to college and beyond, as well as attitudes that will lead to success.  Students explore their values, intelligences, and learning preferences while they develop goal setting, time management, and critical thinking skills.  They are introduced to college resources including use of electronic tools such as myCommnet and Blackboard.  Students engage in career exploration using career software and library databases to write a research paper focusing on preferred career choice.  One of the highlights of the course for those who register in the fall semester is participation in the Common Read program through reading, writing, and projects connected to the chosen book. Not available to ESL students below the 142-level
