Academic Initiatives & Requirements

Academic Initiatives

Navigating academics in your first and second year can sometimes seem overwhelming.  That is why we have created programs specially geared towards helping you develop the skills necessary to succeed. 

Click on one of the below to learn more about the program and its requirements!

LYFE

Being a successful first-year student means more than just getting good grades; it's about getting involved on campus and in your local and global communities, knowing your instructors, knowing how and where to access resources, reflecting on the experiences you've had, and planning the experiences still to come.

As a LYFE Scholar, you will walk away from the semester and the year a stronger student. And with some money in your pocket!  To do this, each semester will require you attend and participate in a series of events and activities. You will be expected to attend specific events, and some of your choosing, which connect to the LYFE pillars.  Students who complete the program will receive a scholarship stipend.  If you complete the LYFE Scholarship program both fall and spring semester AND sign up to live on campus for your sophomore year, we offer a bonus stipend!
