FIGS and TrIGS

Jump in right away by joining a FIG (First-Year Interest Group) or a TrIG (Transfer Interest Group). These are cohorts of up to 20 first-year students who take three or four classes together and attend a weekly seminar facilitated by a Peer Mentor and a College of Education Advisor. FIGs and TrIGs take place every Fall semester. Consider becoming a Peer Mentor and lead a cohort of your very own next year.
