First-Year Experiences

As part of First-Year Experiences, entering deaf and hard-of-hearing students who are enrolled in programs in the College of NTID are required to take Freshman Seminar, a non-credit course that provides students with opportunities to develop/enhance academic skills, personal awareness and community involvement in order to maximize their college experience. Students have opportunities to explore and navigate the college environment, develop/reinforce academic skills and participate in service learning opportunities.

Students are encouraged to establish meaningful connections with faculty, staff and peers. The course promotes the development of plans for ongoing growth and involvement in class and in the RIT/NTID and/or broader community.
