Find a Great Course

New Students,

Check out these small classes designed for incoming freshmen and transfer students. Also consider a First-Year Seminar (FYS). For an FYS, professors select a topic they are passionate about and teach only one section of it to a group of only 20 incoming students. Both freshmen and transfer students can take these special courses, which meet GEP requirements. Sign up now while classes still have room!
