First Year Only Courses

Two students in the library

Every first-year student at UNI has the opportunity to enroll in a first-year only Liberal Arts Core course. This classroom experience connects you to a faculty member who will assist you through the transition to college, a peer mentor who will provide support inside and outside the classroom, and a tight-knit community of other first-year students who are also experiencing their first semester at UNI.
