What is UNIV 101L3?
UNIV is a course designed to help first-year students transition to the academic rigors of college. Students completing UNIV earn higher grades and persist at higher rates than their peers.
UNIV 101L3 will be run as a hybrid model for Fall 2020, including online virtual content and up to 3 face-to-face meetings throughout the semester.
Students learn how to successfully navigate the university system, what study techniques can enhance their grades, and how to live and learn in a multicultural environment. In addition, the classes are small and allow students to develop individual relationships with the faculty/staff teaching team members and other students in the class. This class prepares students for success at EMU and beyond.
