Course Overview: University 100 (The Freshman Seminar)

Catalog description for University 100

Darby the CSUN squirrel reads "The Glass Castle," this year's Freshman Common Reading. University 100: The Freshman Seminar (3 units, letter-graded) is dedicated to ensuring your college success and motivating your journey toward lifelong learning. The seminar will enable you to develop your own plan for personal, academic, and career success through self-evaluation, application of specific techniques, discussions, field experiences, and traditional classroom exercises. These activities will help you acquire effective study strategies, stimulate your critical and creative thinking skills, practice university-level oral and written expression, establish short-term and long-term goals, become a skilled user of library resources, and learn to manage time more efficiently. You'll find out about the many campus resources available to students and will be actively encouraged to form lasting relationships with your professor and classmates. This is a course about making choices: about setting and meeting your personal, academic, and career goals. University 100 is available for GE credit in Subject Explorations--Lifelong Learning (S4), and for Information Competence (IC) credit.
