The Foundations program will ensure that you start off on firm footing in your educational experience at the university.

During the first year on campus, all incoming students in the College of Arts, Sciences, and Letters choose one course to take from the more than 25 seminars offered every year. 
Because Foundations seminars count toward general education requirements (DDC) and not traditional academic concentrations, we encourage you to look for a course that catches your interest, not one that is tied to your major. 

 

New students! 

We know this is a challenging time to start college or move to a new institution. Hear how our faculty want to help you make this transition.
