2 sem. hrs. This seminar facilitates the transition from high school to college by introducing first-year students to academic and extracurricular formal and informal opportunities at Simmons. Cotaught by staff and student facilitators, the seminar reflects on key issues and situations traditional first-year students face as they begin college: discovering Boston, taking advantage of resources, managing time, building a resume, and exploring leadership. Students meet one another and explore questions of identity and values in a safe and supporting environment. The course encourages students to develop confidence and compassion as they interact with others and become active, informed, and engaged members of the Simmons community and beyond.
