The Synergy Symposium is a required seminar for all incoming Synergy students.
Here, students will meet their instructors and fellow classmates, learn valuable course details, and learn important information about the Synergy learning community.
Also, students will be entered into a raffle for a $50 gift card at the UW Bookstore along with other great prizes!
Note: This seminar does not conflict with athletic orientations or other university and residence life activities occurring that day.
Synergy is one of UW’s highly acclaimed first-year programs. Read more below!
CONNECTIONS: Synergy offers two first-year programs that help new students fulfill University Studies Program classes in a cohesive and connected environment. Synergy’s courses deliver increased opportunities for optional study groups, more one-on-one time with instructors, and smaller class sizes. Each of Synergy’s classes fulfills general education credit that all undergraduate students must satisfy at UW.
QUALITY INSTRUCTION: Approximately 300 students join Synergy’s programs to engage with some of UW’s most talented teachers and to easily enroll in high demand courses.
FIRST-YEAR ADVISING: Students in Synergy courses access a trained advisor in the fall to plan for spring course enrollment, long-term academic mapping, and resources on campus for financial, academic, and other issues.
PRIORITY ENROLLMENT: Students with high school indicators outside of UW’s admission parameters choose a Synergy option before June Orientation and experience early enrollment.
You can find UW’s admission guidelines here.
Tap into the benefits of launching your college career as an undeclared major! College statistics show that starting as an undeclared major can shorten your time to graduation and increase your satisfaction with first-year advising.
If you decide you would like to declare a major, be sure to speak with an advisor before June orientation about your plans as well as prerequisites to enter the major. You must speak with an advisor before registering for courses within the major. Advisors can be reached during business hours: please call 307-766-2398.
