Here is what students are saying about College 101:
"I would recommend College 101 to freshman. It is a great course to take to help you ease into the crazy, and sometimes overwhelming college life. The resources and contacts you gain while in this class are invaluable. There are so many tools that I would have never known about without taking College 101. Best of all, your class becomes a kind of family, and you gain some great friends along the way."
-Tori, Class 2014
"I would recommend this course to an incoming freshman because it broadens your perspective of who you are, how others are around you and how you can relate to them, while gaining an understanding of the in's and out's of college life." - Mary, Class of 2011
"What I enjoy most about College 101 is that it gives me a sense of belonging. While there are still regular assignments like any other class it is much more laid back and allows for meeting new people and forming strong bonds. Through College 101 I have met some of my closest friends on campus." - Grant, Class of 2011
