Featured FIG Theme: Breaking Barriers

Joining a First-Year Interest Group (FIG) during fall term is one of the easiest ways to transition to college while staying on track to graduate on time. The philosophy of the FIG program is to help students build an academic home comprised of other first-year students with similar interests, an upper classman peer mentor (FIG Assistant), and a faculty mentor who help the students make connections all across campus.
