Your First Year Experience
Welcome to Edgewood College
ORIENTATION: AUGUST 18–20
Now that you've settled in, it's time for First Year Orientation! This is the time when we celebrate you joining our community, as well as share with you some of the amazing resources we have on campus to support your success until graduation.
Make connections with fellow students, learn some important tools and tips, and have some fun along the way.
In your first semester, you'll explore a topic of your choice with a faculty mentor, peer leader, and classmates—who you'll meet at Orientation and get to know! You'll broaden your horizons together, gaining new perspectives and encouraging each other.
COR 1 encourages you to consider your own identity, values, beliefs, worldview, and spiritualities, as you consider the questions "Who am I, and who can I become," and "What is my role in building a just and compassionate world?"
You and your classmates will get out into the community, or meet with community members in your classroom, so you'll be able to apply your learning right away. These seminars are an important way we connect learning, beliefs, and action.
