BGSU 1910

The BGSU 1910: First Year Seminar is a one-hour, small, seminar style class that first year, first time students take in the fall semester.

BGSU 1910 seminars provide first-year, first-time students the opportunity to work closely with a professor and peers on a topic of the faculty member’s choice. With class size capped at 20, the BGSU 1910 seminar format enables students to engage in an intimate intellectual environment from the beginning of their college career. BGSU 1910 Faculty utilize experiential learning activities to engage students in the relevance of the course topic on campus, in the classroom, and in the community.

The goals of the BGSU 1910 First-Year Seminar program are to engage students in the intellectual life of the university and the relevance of the seminar topic, connect students with faculty and peers, and involve students in appropriate co-curricular opportunities on-campus and in the community. Best practices include experiential learning activities and projects, including those that introduce students to community engagement learning outcomes.

The BGSU 1910 First-Year Seminar Program is led by Kim Brooks, Associate Director, Office of Undergraduate Education,
