GSR 101 First Year Seminar (FYS) (3)

The purpose of this course is to help new college stu­dents make a successful transition to the intellectual and personal demands of college. In this course, students will complete a wide variety of experiences that will help them address these essential questions: Who am I, and how did I get here? What is college all about? Where am I going, and how do I get there? This course is offered as part of the Foundations semester of the General Studies Program which integrates GSR 101 (First Year Seminar), GSR 102 (Critical Reading and Writing) and GSR 103, (American Sign Language and Deaf Studies).
