FIRST YEAR INTEREST GROUPS

As an incoming freshman, you have the option studentsof participating in a First-Year Interest Group (FIG). FIGs create smaller communities where students can more easily get to know their peers and professors. FIGs -- some of which include a shared residence hall -- consist of one to three courses linked together and taken by a cohort of first-year students. When you sign up for a FIG, you get to:

  • Register early and have a partial schedule made prior to your orientation session.
  • Enroll in some of our most popular courses.
  • Interact with professors who excel at connecting with first-year students.
