The University Freshman Center was created to provide support to
freshman throughout their first year on campus. This is a
testament to how important they are to the University.
Regardless of your child’s major, all first-year students receive
their advising through this area. Our advising team is eager
to assist students with all matters related to academic success and
the overall transition to the University. Since its creation
in 2001, the University Freshman Center has offered academic
advising and support services to all incoming students. Our
advisors are a critical resource that first-year students can rely
upon throughout the first year on campus. All students will
be assigned a personal advisor that will guide and assist students
as they journey through this exciting time at the beginning of
their college career.
