Your First Year

The Shepard Academic Resource Center provides programs specifically for our first year students as they make the transition from high school to college. These programs are designed to address the core needs of a student new to the college setting, including academics, social, and emotional experiences.

First Year Advising Support

All students are assigned a faculty advisor who serves as the primary academic advisor. The Shepard Academic Resource Center knows the advising process can be tricky and we are here to help get students moving in the right direction on their academic journey. Here you will find information about the role of the faculty advisor, advising resources, and links to curriculum information and major requirements.
