This course is designed to help students make a smooth transition from high school to college. This will be accomplished by building connections between students, between students and the faculty, and between the students and the College. Also the course will provide opportunities for students to develop the skills, values, behaviors, and attitudes necessary for success at Stillman and beyond.
An integral part of the first year experience is the Freshman Orientation Course. The course covers information to enhance student understanding of higher education, transitioning from high school to college, and addressing the development of important skills such as critical thinking, writing, test-taking, career exploration, and time management.
