First-year cohorts engage a small group of students in academic coursework that appeals to their unique interests and allows them to develop supportive relationships with faculty, staff, and other students who share their interests. By taking a predetermined set of courses, students can make early progress towards graduation while getting the support they need to transition to college life and graduate on time.
Living-Learning Communities (LLCs) are specialized living environments for small groups of residential students. The themes for these residency-based programs include:
- Foreign Languages and International Relationships (FLAIR) is for students planning to study French, German, and/or Spanish.
- Men of Achievement, Leadership, and Excellence Society (MALES) is a wellness and leadership-oriented community for men interested in outdoor adventures.
- Well Women of West Georgia (WWW) is a wellness-oriented community for women interested in health and fitness.
- Residential Peer Mentoring (RPM) pairs students with a residential peer mentor for routine sessions and small group meetings.
