FYS: Commonwealth Honors College – “Front Page”
The “Front Page” First-Year Seminar (FYS) in the Commonwealth Honors College (CHC) provides students an opportunity to discuss current state, national, and global issues and events with talented faculty, distinguished community members, politicians, and influential alums. Class time is devoted to vibrant and challenging discussions based on critical reading and analysis of newspaper articles on current issues. By analyzing frontpage stories from major news outlets, students are encouraged to be engaged in the social, political, and economic concerns and to provide a context for interaction with CHC community members. This FYS will also help students develop the critical thinking and communication skills necessary to successfully transition to college and prepare for interviews for scholarships, graduate and professional schools, and employment.
