I am extremely disappointed in the University Core Curriculum’s
decision to eliminate freshman seminars. Despite what critics say I
believe that the seminars did fulfill their purpose.
As a freshman, the seminar provided me with answers to my
questions as soon as I had them, rather than waiting three weeks to
get in to see an adviser. Seminars gave me a break from lectures
consisting of 300 people where the professor doesn’t know my name.
It has also supplied me with lessons on note taking and studying
My freshman seminar helped make my transition to CSU easier,
making me more familiar with the campus and my surroundings.
Frankly, I’m scared for future freshmen.
