The Freshman Seminars (FRSE) are designed to engage students in learning, acquaint them with the learning tools and resources available at Bowie State University, and orient them to the scholarly community from the outset of their undergraduate studies in a way that will bridge to later experiences in their chosen majors. In addition, the Freshman Seminars (FRSE) facilitate students‘ adjustment to the high expectations, demanding workload, increased academic liberties, and other aspects of the transition to college life and introduce them to their responsibilities as members of the University community. Full-time staff, including Academic Advising Specialists, teach FRSE and, as the name implies, conduct sections in the fall and spring semesters, thus providing opportunities for students to develop relationships with full-time staff and other students in academic areas of interest to them.
Each baccalaureate student must complete at least three (3) credits (one class) of the Freshman Seminar.

Freshman Student Advising
The Freshman Student Advising Syllabus is made available to ensure students understand the intended relationship between them and the Academic Advising Center. In addition to working with students on developing academic plans and scheduling courses each semester, advisors are instrumental in nurturing life skills, identifying resources, and making necessary referrals.
