First-Year Experience

There is no better way to learn the ropes, than from someone who’s been there before. Your Connections Leaders (CLs) are upper-class students who will share their experiences with you and will introduce you to the campus and resources.

You will work in small groups at both Registration Day and Welcome Week, and the CLs will lead the way and serve as additional resources for you throughout your first year.
