Classroom Connections is a chance for new students to meet with their professors in a casual setting.

New students have the opportunity to meet with faculty in a small-group and get to know them outside the classroom in a casual setting. 

Students who participated in the past tell us that they appreciated the opportunity to get to know their professor in a setting that is a little less intimidating than office hours and a lot more conducive to conversation than the classroom. Professors tell us that they enjoy the opportunity for a more relaxed setting for dialogue with students.

Course-Based Sessions

Faculty who teach large, introductory courses can sign-up to host a course-based session of Classroom Connections. All first-year students in the Professor’s courses receive an email invitation to sign up to meet with a faculty member and a small group of their classmates. 

Check your email during the academic year for opportunities to sign up!
