EDUC-X152: The Right Start

There are still some open spots in EDUC-X152: The Right Start, which we are offering for the first time in the Spring this semester.  It’s a 2-credit primer in college course academics, an introduction to the rich resources of IU, and an argument for a long-range vision of college.  A brief description is provided below and a flier is attached.

X152: “Read-Learn Techniques 3”
VT: The Right Start

“In my beginning is my end.”

-T.S. Eliot

This full-semester, 2 credit course is a personalized introduction to IU Bloomington for freshmen.  It’s also about imagining the big picture of college right from the beginning.  Outside of class, students explore academic and cultural campus resources, attend events and activities for credit, and get involved with a campus organization.  In class, we invite guest speakers, go on campus tours, and discuss both the big issues (What else can a college degree mean besides a shot at a job?  What is happiness and what is success?  How can I best use my 20s to take advantage of their full potential?) and the smaller ones (How should I write an email to my professor?).

Spots available in the following sections for Spring 2014:

30657, MW, 9:30-10:45 AM
30658, MW, 11:15 AM-12:30 PM
30655, MW, 1-2:15 PM
30656, MW, 2:45-4 PM

Please let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to put students in touch with me directly (email or call at 855-7301).
