DUSS First Year Seminar


The Director for Undergraduate Student Success is the coordinator for the First Year Seminar. FYS is a one-credit course designed to help students transition from high school to college, strengthen the basic skills they will need to succeed, create bonds with others in the campus community, and become acquainted with the nature of a Jesuit education. There are thirteen sections of FYS with approximately 15-20 students in each section. All sections are co-taught by a peer instructor, along with a faculty member, a Jesuit, or an administrator.
