The University of Georgia’s Freshman College Summer Experience offers a transformative four-week academic residential program to a diverse community of first-year undergraduates. Introducing scholars to the rigors and unique learning opportunities at America’s first state-chartered university, Freshman College Summer Experience allows students to form meaningful academic and social networks, equipping them for future academic success.
Students enroll in three credit-bearing courses including a service-learning course that fulfills the University’s new experiential learning requirement, a discipline-based course that fills quickly in general semesters, and a small-group seminar on personal development. Graduate student mentors live in residence during the program to provide sustained support as students navigate their first experiences as college students.
These components and much more make the Freshman College Summer Experience the premier first-year experience program at the University of Georgia.
