The Freshman Success Project

The Freshman Success Project - FLC 604

Most high school seniors look forward to going to college.  They know it’s going to be a new and different experience.  They may not fully understand, though, the academic challenges to freshman success.  In LC 604, we study the topic of freshman success while emphasizing the critical thinking skills needed of college students.  We also conduct a research project to further our insights into the college academic experience.  Students interview faculty members and/or upperclassmen to determine which of the factors discussed in class help students succeed in college.  While the course emphasizes objective data regarding the transition to college and freshman year success, the opportunity is provided for students to apply this information to their own experience as college freshmen.  Self-development is an underlying theme of the course.  Essay writing skills developed in ISE 100 will be applied in this course.
