Freshmen

Freshmen take courses as part of a close-knit community of students — a cohort — who take their first-year Core courses together. In the Core curriculum's small learning community, students truly get to know their professors and classmates.

The Core is an interdisciplinary approach to learning that deepens student understanding of the world and how it works. The series of courses is designed to help students develop critical thinking and writing skills as well as understanding of a wide variety of subjects. Students may earn credit in art and economics one quarter, history and sociology the next.
