Freshman Inquiry Mentor Sessions
A crucial part of the Freshman Inquiry course is the mentor session, where students work closely with a peer mentor to understand and apply material from the main class session, and practice the skills and knowledge needed to create high quality individual and group work.
The small size of mentor sessions (12 students) creates an interactive environment where students get hands-on experience in developing skills in research, writing, communication, and computer technologies. Students learn how to effectively access the Internet, to judge the quality of internet sites, and to use technology to communicate with faculty and other students in class.
