Gen-1 Programming is purposefully grounded in four pillars: Live, Learn, Give, and Earn, through which Gen-1 students engage in opportunities that foster success and enrich their university experience.
Gen-1 students also complete the following courses:
- PD 1100: Success Strategies I (1st year, fall)
- PD 2100: Service & Success II (1st year, spring)
- PD 2070: Purpose & Profesionalism (2nd year, fall)
These courses enhance students' transition to college and prepare them for employment opportunities including academic internships, co-op, and study abroad experiences.
