Welcome to the CLASSmates Program!

The CLASSmates Program is designed to enhance and strengthen the learning and social experience for students in their very first year of college. The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences created this program to help incoming freshmen transition into university life and develop skills they will need to succeed in their academic careers.

As a group, CLASSmates students enroll in the same core courses required for graduation and participate together in academic and social activities. Within the cohort, they form strong study partnerships and establish friendships that they will grow throughout their college days and beyond. Modeled on learning community programs at elite universities and liberal arts colleges, The CLASSmates Program provides students the opportunity to work closely with professors and teaching assistants committed to their success.

If you want to take your learning beyond the classroom, become a CLASSmates student.
