First Year Interest Groups FIGs and Liberal Arts (LA) 101

What are FIGs?

A FIG (First-year Interest Group) consists of 15-20 freshman that 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.
