First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs)

First-year cohorts engage a small group of students in academic coursework that appeals to their unique interests and allows them to develop supportive relationships with faculty, staff, and other students who share their interests. By taking a predetermined set of courses, students can make early progress towards graduation while getting the support they need to transition to college life and graduate on time.

 

 First-Year Interest Groups (FIGs)

First-year interest groups (FIGs) center on a common interest, such as career exploration, or identity, such as first-generation college students. Other examples of 2014-2015 FIGs include the African American Male Initiative and Access to Student Success for students with disabilities.
