Class description

I hope that by the end of this course, students will be knowledgeable of the vast amount of resources available to them here at the University of Washington. One of the things I loved about the FIG program when I was a freshmen were the people I met in my FIG. My goal is to provide students with a strong sense of community at such a large university which will foster better academic achievement as well as the social aspect many first year college students desire.
