FIRST YEAR SEMINAR
Georgia Perimeter College established a First Year Seminar in Fall 2011 as part of a broader effort to connect with students in the early period of their transition to a college environment. Research has demonstrated that students who become engaged in the college community are more likely to succeed academically.
GPCS 1010, First Year Seminar, is a three credit course that introduces students to college life, provides information on expectations of college students and strategies for college success, and builds information literacy through investigation of a specific theme. Themes are selected and designed by seminar instructors.
