GEN ST 199
Introduces students to various aspects of the University of Washington community. Includes exploration of university resources and opportunities, and academically related skill development. Credit/no-credit only. Offered: A.
I like to call this class UW 101, because you learn everything there is to know about the UW campus, as well as getting to know the students/staff that you interact with on a daily basis. Starting college can be a bit intimidating, and this class is designed to help ease your transition and discover everything the UW has to offer!
Student learning goals
General method of instruction
Lots of activities with your fellow FIG members, excursions around the U-District and greater Seattle area, guest speakers, discussions about college life, as well as an on-going portfolio project due at the end of the quarter.
Come awake, alert, and with an open mind :-)
Class assignments and grading
Small assignments will be assigned every week or so. The portfolio project will be explained at the beginning of the quarter, as should be worked on as the quarter progresses (to avoid having to cram it all at the end!).
This is a credit/no credit class. Whether you recieve credit will be based on participation, assignments, and attendance. You must attend every class, unexcused absences will NOT be tolerated.
