Teaching Applications of Learning:
This course helps first semester freshman successfully transition from high school to the rigor of OLLU.  It is taught by an instructor and a First-Year Connection (FYC) mentor.  The course focuses on overcoming freshman anxieties, college level academic skills, and connecting to the university community.

Referrals to Support Services:
Our academic counseling staff helps students in many ways and listening is one of them.  We can guide students to support services on campus if they are unsure where to go.  We may connect students to our Tutoring Center, Writing Center, Counseling Services, Student Support Services (SSS) Program, McNair Scholars Program, a faculty member, Services for Students with Disabilities, Center for Service-Learning & Volunteerisms (CSLV), or Career Services to name just a few referrals.
