The first-year experience is designed to assist IU South Bend’s first-year students with their transition from high school or a job to the university.
Students will initially meet with an advisor, who will introduce them to campus, assist in planning their course schedule, and encourage them to begin considering a major or an area of interest.
- Students will have the opportunity to select courses from a variety of first-year seminars. The first-year seminars are taught by the First-Year Experience Faculty. Additionally, each seminar has a peer mentor who serves as an advocate and model student for the class.
First-Year Seminars are courses with smaller class sizes, providing an excellent chance to engage with faculty on a more personal basis and to fulfill at least one of your general education requirements
