The University Success Center
The seminar is a critical component of the First-Year Experience, where you will meet new people, connect with faculty and staff, and discover the UNA and Shoals communities.
FYE Seminars are themed, one-hour classes that may be attached to one or two of your required general education courses. Themes generally involve possibilities for majors, such as Nursing, History, or the Sciences. Seminar instructors determine the activities and assignments of the course, often times with your input, so your participation is important. In the past, activities have included:
- Visits to campus and community locations of importance
- Class discussions on current events
- Guest presentations
- Additional study sessions
When you arrive at SOAR this summer, be sure to ask your advisor to place you in the seminar that is right for you. Space is limited, so the sooner you get to orientation the more likely you are to get into your first choice. Click the link to view a list of the Fall 2014 FYE Learning Community Seminars.
