Freshman Interest Groups

Members of our freshman interest groups (FIGs) enjoy a residential life that offers enrichment outside of the classroom and is tailored to their interests. Living among peers who share common interests and participating in programming led by campus staff enhances students’ success and helps them to build skills that bring success in their careers and lives.

We offer Foundations and the Well for freshmen.
