Freshman Interest Groups - Fall 2016

Freshman Interest Groups are living and learning communities.

If you're a first-time freshmen at UW, we invite you to join a FIG, where you'll take three or four sections of linked or clustered courses for a semester, while living on a 'designated' floor in the UW residence halls with other FIG students enrolled in the same course sections.

FIGs are a friendly and fun way to begin life at UW. Instead of making your way through those first research papers, final exams, and study sessions alone, you'll be part of a community of learners, yet you'll maintain the flexibility to be independent too.

Choosing a FIG is easy!

Look through the choices and pick one that sounds interesting to you. FIGs are generally designed to meet University Studies requirements, so even if you decide on a completely different major, most of the courses you've completed as part of the FIG will still satisfy courses required of all students as part of UW's general education program.
