The College of Education and Health Professions understands the importance of establishing a very strong connection to the university during your first year of college. Our hope is to ensure a smooth transition for you from high school into college life and academic success.
To new incoming freshman, we offer a Freshman Seminar Class (EDHP 1001) that partners knowledgeable faculty or staff mentors from the College of Education and Health Professions with a group of peer students. The Freshman Seminar course is part of a block of courses that would include at least two additional general studies or COEHP courses that 20 students move through as a cohort. It is a component of First Year Experience.
The Freshman Seminar course will meet twice a week for the first eight weeks of the fall semester. Freshman Seminar mentors provide weekly forums to discuss problems, learn about university and community resources, and learn the skills essential for academic success. Participation in the program has an additional benefit of earlier priority registration than is available to freshmen who did not enroll in Freshman Seminar for the following spring semester.
