Freshman Writing

Communicate Clearly and Effectively

The main goal of the Freshman Writing Program, a two-course sequence required of all full-time first-year students, is to help incoming students acclimate to college and learn to communicate clearly and effectively, skills they will continue to develop throughout their college careers and beyond. A unique feature of the Freshman Writing Program is that each week, in addition to attending regular class meetings, each student meets individually for a one-on-one writing tutorial with his or her instructor. Through this method, by the end of Term II, students become more independent writers better prepared to take on any academic or professional writing challenge. The Freshman Writing Program, it’s the “write” place to start!
