First Year Experience

Your first-year experience is the cornerstone upon which your university learning experience is built.  It is comprised of curricular, co-curricular and experiential learning throughout the year that engages you in UC’s signature opportunities and prepares you for graduation.

Programs like Bearcat Bound Orientation, Welcome Weekend, Convocation, the Common Reading Experience, First-Year Seminars, Service-Learning, Academic Advising, Learning Communities, Residence Halls, Student Activities, Study Abroad, and other first-year initiatives focus on:

  •  Habits of mind and interaction needed for success in the university
  •  Engaging in UC’s diverse cultural life
  •  Integration of knowledge gained in courses, experiences, and  student life
  •  Exploring professional and civic responsibilities as an educated person
