What's an FYS?
Your First-Year Seminar is the very first class you'll take at Conn. It's where you'll become familiar with our Connections Curriculum, where you'll meet your team of advisers, and where you'll begin to build the foundation for your college career and life after. Join us for one of these special First-Year Seminars we're conducting just for you!
