What are FIGs?

Each FIG is unique and tailored to explore an exciting academic theme while helping students acclimate to campus both academically and socially. FIGs are intentionally small to maximize the interconnections with students, faculty, and the peer mentor, with each FIG being limited to 20 students.

There are seven themes to choose from and with over 50 FIGs offered each fall there is something for everyone!
