The formal academic portion of the program is composed of three classes you will take over the course of your first two semesters. These classes are Inquiry 111, Writing 111, and Speech 111. The Inquiry 111 course has been structured so that, following completion of the course, students will be able to:
- Articulate and practice the values and methods of a liberal arts education.
- Engage, experience and explain different ways of knowing.
- Pursue interdisciplinary study and discussion of important issues.
Writing 111 and Speech 111 are purposely designed to complement Inquiry 111. For more information regarding these courses, please refer to the Westminster College Undergraduate Catalog.
A sense of community is important to the people of Westminster College, so much so that we often refer to Westminster as a "family." Therefore, the development of community is an essential component of your Westminster experience and the First-Year Program. Fresh Start Orientation is your introduction to this community and a vital part of your social life here.
