Freshman Experience Seminar

In their first year, college students face a number of new challenges. The Freshman Experience Seminar at UNH is designed to help students make the transition from high school to college.

This program incorporates the talents of more than thirty university personnel, both faculty and staff, and reflects the University of New Haven's commitment to high-quality student advising.

During their first semester, all new freshmen are required to take the one-credit team-taught FE001 Freshman Experience Seminar, which addresses such topics as academic standards, diversity, time and stress management, college life versus high school life, university relationships, responsible human sexuality, exploration of self, alcohol and substance abuse, and experiential learning. The goal of this seminar is to give students the tools to help them understand and succeed in what can be, and increasingly is, a very competitive environment. FE001 is also a wonderful support system for students who may be away from home for the first time. FE001 is mandatory for all incoming first-time freshmen with no previous college experience and is a requirement for graduation.
