Majors of Interest:

This FIG will appeal to students who seek extra resources to ensure their college success, as well as students interested in English, creative writing, film studies, and popular culture.

FIG Description:

This FIG is for students motivated to survive and thrive in their first semester at college – with a fun spin! Students will take the zombie-themed first year seminar as well as a college success course and English composition. The combination of classes and activities will equip students with an arsenal of resources and critical thinking skills to survive til dawn – or winter break! They will also make connections beyond the first semester with fellow FIG participants, as having a team is essential when battling the zombies of college stress.
