About Freshman Studies
Every new student wants to succeed. Success is measured in many ways, but at Seton Hall University we envision a type of success where individuals are at their best socially and academically. The University aims to instill in its students a vision that involves forming students to be servant leaders in a global society.
The Freshman Studies Program is an award-winning academic advising program. Vice President Cooper-Gibson, Associate Vice President Cunningham, and Freshman Studies First-Year Advisers work to ensure that incoming first-year students experience immense personal and intellectual growth.
- Freshman Studies is designed to assist first-year college students in clarifying their academic and career goals.
- Freshman Studies helps students master two other important tasks for college success: adjusting to life on a college campus and developing a social network.
- Freshman Studies uses three program elements to assist with these tasks. These elements are the First-Year Academic Adviser, the Peer Adviser, and the University Life course.
