First- and Second-year Experiences

First- and Second-Year Experiences exists to help new students make a successful transition to campus, both academically and 就我个人而言. Our aim is to foster a sense of belonging, promote engagement in the life of the university, 并有助于澄清目的, 意义与方向. We believe providing new students with an experience that focuses on connections with other students and many institutional resources throughout the first and second year allows the success rate to greatly improve through the rest of their college career. 


New Student 取向 offers a unique experience for freshmen, 转移, and non-traditional students at the beginning of their first semester to ease the transition into college. 在方向, students participate in various activities to help them explore campus, prepare them to start their first day of college, and 开发 relationships that will last throughout their college experience. 


Along with the required Liberal Arts 101 course that is required of all incoming students — first-year students and 转移 — comes a C-N Eagle Guide. 鹰指南 begin connecting with their students the very first week of classes in their LA-101 class. Though they do not see them in a regularly scheduled and structured setting after the first semester, 鹰指南 continue to help their group of students to help new students in taking intentional steps to find their rhythm and community on campus, 通过参加活动, connecting with other students, or simply exploring the resources and community both on and around campus. 


父母, your role will change as your student begins college, but they still need you. Students rely on you to help them grow, 开发, 然后变得独立, as well as to provide a stable presence in their ever-changing world. Learning to navigate this time can be difficult, satisfying, and frightening. 在Carson-Newman, our goal is to provide resources and tools to help you guide your students through their academic journey.
