Beyond George Street is the First-Year Experience course for freshmen entering the Honors College. The primary purpose of the course is to welcome new students into the experience and opportunities of the Honors College. Participants are introduced to honors faculty, staff, and students through small group discussion, one-on-one mentoring, and a community engagement project. They learn of the wide-range of opportunities available to them, many of which are exclusive to students in the Honors College. Through a series of reflective exercises and discussions, students explore their academic strengths and interests, ultimately creating and developing a professional portfolio that they will use throughout their time in the Honors College, starting with their first-semester advising experience. The course meets one day a week for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Students receive 1 course credit.
