What is LA 101: Liberal Arts Planning and Pathways?

First-year students often have many questions regarding college, including how the University works, what life will be like as a student, how to plan for a successful future, and how to make the most of their time on the 40 Acres.

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.

LA 101 is composed of 15 units covering a variety of topics. As participants in the course, students will review the weekly units online, complete assignments or quizzes, and meet as a class to process the content and connect with peers.

Topics include: Introduction to the Liberal Arts, Being an Effective Student, Health and Wellness/Work-Life Balance, Getting the Most of Your 4 Years, Getting Good Grades, Success Beyond Good Grades, Becoming an Academic Leader, Mentorship, Academic Enrichment, Diversity and Ethics, and Professional Entrepreneurship.
