Advising for First-Year Students

We encourage first-year students to take courses with us during their freshmen year, including departmental courses, General Education courses, and Freshman Seminars.  Some courses to consider during AY 2022-2023: 

  • GENED 1089. The Border: Race, Politics, and Health in Modern Mexico (Fall)
  • GENED 1174. Life and Death in the Anthropocene (Fall)

We are happy to talk to individual first year students about our program, but one of the best ways to get to know us is to attend one of our Departmental advising Open Houses or to come to one of our other community events -- including an annual alumni career panel. Just write to Allie Belser to be put on a mailing list for announcements.
