What opportunities or programs does Whitworth University have in place to help first-year students acclimate to college life?
Whitworth University
Great question! And sorry for the delay in responding. Every new first-year and transfer student is enrolled in a Foundations class with a small group of students and faculty advisor. The focus of the weekly class is to support students in making a successful transition to college by learning about all of the resources and supports available and to build a four-year plan to graduate on time.
