Students attending college for the first time have a unique experience.
Engage. Achieve. The First Year Experience Collection in the Ray Howard Library.
Some questions students ask in class and some questions they ask about themselves to themselves. They can use the first year experience collection to find their paths.
Some students knew they wanted to go to college, but maybe they don’t know what they want to study. They can use the first year experience collection to explore academic disciplines to see if they want to commit to a quarter-long course, or to a career.
Some students came here to explore, to learn new things, to be a citizen of the world. They can explore the college experience with the first year experience collection.
