About Freshman Studies
Every new student wants to succeed. Success is measured in many ways, but at Seton Hall University we envision a type of success where individuals are at their best socially and academically. The University aims to instill in its students a vision that involves forming students to be servant leaders in a global society.
The Freshman Studies Program, now in its 30th year, is an award-winning academic advising program. Vice President Gottlieb, Associate Vice President Cunningham, along with other mentors in the Department, work to ensure that incoming freshmen experience immense personal and intellectual growth.
• Freshman Studies is designed to assist first-year college students in clarifying their academic and career goals.
• Freshman Studies helps students master two other important tasks for college success: adjusting to life on a college campus and developing a social network.
• Freshman Studies uses three program elements to assist with these tasks. These elements are the academic adviser/mentor, the peer adviser and the University Life course.
