Teaching FYE 1220: First-Year Seminar

The First-Year Seminar is Georgia Southern’s most intentional initiative to introduce students to college-level learning and help them make a successful transition to the university.  All new students classified as freshmen are required to take the course in their first semester.  Its success is due to the dedication of faculty who invest their professional energies in teaching it.  Whether you’re considering teaching for the first time or you’re a veteran FYE faculty member, thank you for your commitment to first-year student success!

New: FYE 1220 Faculty Symposium (for new and veteran faculty; offered twice: April 14 and April 20)
