FIGS

A First-year Interest Group (FIG) is a cohort of up to 25 first-year students who develop a community by taking two to four classes together. Students get to know their classmates by attending a weekly seminar facilitated by a peer mentor and staff member. The College of Education offers eleven different FIG cohorts, six in Applied Learning and Development, one in Athletic Training and six in Kinesiology and Health.
