What are FIGs?

A FIG (First-year Interest Group) consists of 15 - 20 freshmen who take two to three courses together as well as a one-hour weekly seminar co-facilitated by both a peer and staff mentor. In the seminar class (UGS 018), you will discuss issues that you will encounter as a freshman, learn about study and time management strategies, engage in social opportunities, and discover opportunities and resources available to you as a UT student.

What is LA 101?

LA 101 is an online 1-hour pass/fail course with a supplemental discussion section that is designed exclusively for first-year students in the College of Liberal Arts. Students in the course will be given the tools to plan their progress through college, prosper in their classes, and prepare for a career after graduation.
