Freshman Requirement

The Real World is a required course for freshmen that deals with challenging issues that students are likely to encounter, directly or indirectly, in their personal lives.  Each class section meets once per rotation to discuss strategies for handling these challenges in healthy and effective ways.   The goal for the class is to cultivate empathetic people that care about each other and the world around them by teaching core socio-emotional learning skills including self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making. The course does not involve any graded work or outside of class assignments.
