The First-Year Student Experience
Who can answer my questions? What resources are available? How can I get the most out of college? University 101 (UNV) is a course that introduces students to the structure of higher education and specific Mercer policies. Issues such as successful study skills, cultural diversity, critical thinking, ethics, personal relationships, health, safety and careers are all introduced and discussed. The course is required of all first year students who are not enrolled in an experiential section of First-Year Seminar.
The faculty member of UNV 101 is the advisor to the students of his/her UNV 101 section! This is a great chance for students to really get to know a key member of the Mercer community who can assist with their academic and personal success. Students will also work with a Peer Advisor (PA) during this experience. This upperclass student assists with the facilitation of UNV 101, and is also another resource for new, first-year students during their initial transition to the University.
