Faculty Resources and FAQs

These courses are part of the University Studies Program* (USP), and are designed to help all first year students make the transition from High School to College. In these seminars, you will build relationships with faculty and classmates in a community of exploration and discussion, as we investigate the world of ideas together. You will be introduced to instructors who are passionate about their field of study, and equally committed to supporting student success. Whether you are certain of your Major or are exploring your options, you can look for topics here that will spark your interest in the world around you, and help you to feel part of a community of learners, scholars and friends.

First-Year Seminar Pre-Semester Survey

In the fall of 2018, our First-Year Seminar students and faculty are partnering with a group of UW student researchers to learn all we can about our student and faculty experience with the First-Year Seminar. We are interested to know students' thoughts about their FYS at the beginning of the semester. Please take a few minutes to complete the following pre-semester survey: https://survey.uwyo.edu/TakeSurvey.aspx?PageNumber=1&SurveyID=m2LH5824M&Preview=true#
