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 in-person for Fall 2021 and will include some online content to help students adapt and gain familiarity with Canvas, EMU's course management system. Most EMU courses include some content in Canvas.
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.
