The First-Year Experience at the College of Charleston is an academic program designed to integrate new students into the academic and cultural community of the College. All of the courses give new students an opportunity to work closely with top-level faculty, to meet other new students at the beginning of the school year, smooth their transition to college, and provide them with the skills that will help them succeed throughout their academic careers.
