From selecting a major to developing strong academic habits, the college transition can present challenges. We assist incoming students with helping them discover their strengths and navigate the college experience.
- A six-week residential summer program for incoming freshmen
Designed to ignite love for learning and build strong academic foundations, Bulldog Scholars Academy gives incoming freshman an opportunity to jump-start their education by earning six credits toward graduation. Academy participants live on campus, take two college-level courses, and receive academic and social support.
- Interdisciplinary learning communities for first and second-year students
Scholars Studio creates inclusive, community-oriented learning experiences that help students expand perspectives, make connections, and develop bold visions for the future. Each learning community or Studio offers a cohort of students an opportunity to explore a particular topic, problem, or theme through an interdisciplinary lens. Studios consist of 2-5 general education courses and provide hands-on, contextualized learning experiences.
