The Fall 2013 First Year Seminar EXPOSITION was held in the YU Atrium, Thursday, Dec. 5. It was a student-driven affair and celebration of student learning.

Twenty-four FYS classes and more than 350 first-year students put together class booths as one of their collaborative activities built into every seminar. All campus and community members were invited to watch the students show off their work, learn about what other First Year Seminar classes have done, and have a culminating event for their first semester on campus.

The seminar program, as part of the First Year Experience and the other high impact practices (HIPs), is meant to engage new college students in a community of learners in which they recognize and embrace the value of their learning, move ahead in learning about new ideas and questioning previous thinking - think more broadly, openly, and globally - and also work together collaboratively in and outside of the classroom.

The EXPO celebrates this collaboration while recognizing their learning. For more details on this year's seminars, see the First Year Seminar home page.
