Academic First Year Experiences


Academic First Year Experiences, a program of CIELO, provides opportunities for faculty, staff, and first-year students (including freshmen and new transfer students) to link curricular learning with co-curricular learning in ways that help new students make a successful transition to the University.

Postmortal Poster Gallery

We have about a dozen different posters you can choose from for display in department and program offices.  Choose a design and email me with your preference.  (For high-traffic offices only; if you want one for a private office or your desk, I have the same collection available for 8-1/2 x 11-inch printing.)  View the gallery images....
