Q175 Welcome to The College is a guide to understanding the College of Arts and Sciences at Indiana University. This course is highly recommended for Direct Admit freshmen! The goal of this first 8- week, one credit-hour course is to introduce students to the valuable tools at their disposal and to teach them how to use these resources most effectively. Students will negotiate on-line resources and have key introductions to units on campus including Overseas Study, the Career Development/Arts and Sciences Placement Office, Service Learning and more. Guest speakers from the Bloomington campus will contribute to this course and on-site visits to individual resources such as the Main Library will take place. Students will begin to construct their own professional portfolio, a valuable tool for career placement, graduate study, and personal growth. Attendance is mandatory and brief homework assignments will be given. There is no final exam.
