FYS101-Connections: A First-Year Seminar introduces first-year students to Reinhardt University through activities that intentionally promote active learning and the enhancement of those critical reading and thinking skills essential for academic success.
The course also involves a focused study of a contemporary or historical issues selected by the course instructor. A guided approach to this topic is intended to enable students to establish a rigorous approach to college academics.
In addition, the course also provides first-year students a further orientation to the University, enabling them to better participate in campus life both academically and socially. Included are co-curricular activities by Student Life introducing entering students to Reinhardt’s emphasis on values and ethics applicable to one’s academic and personal life.
