UNIV100: The Student in the University

UNIV100: The Student in the University

UNIV 100 is a one-credit seminar for all entering students that help them to answer the following questions:

Why am I here? and How can I get the most out of the University of Maryland?

The goal of the seminar is to connect students to the resources they need to excel while making sure their transition to college as smooth as possible. To accomplish this, small groups of students are paired with class instructors who structure the class and serve as "sounding-boards" when questions arise. 

The College of Agriculture and Natural Resources offers three sections of UNIV 100 reserved exclusively for students in our majors. These sections are taught by Academic Programs staff and include topics/issues specific to those of interest to our students. 

There are seven required elements that are covered in every section of UNIV100:

  • Why am I here?
  • What are my goals for my education at the University of Maryland?
  • Academic study skills
  • Time management 
  • Major/career exploration
  • Diversity
  • Responsible Decision Making

UNIV sections for AGNR students are limited to an enrollment of 15 or fewer students in order to create a more discussion-oriented environment in the classroom and to promote more opportunity for instructor/student and peer interaction.

    UNIV 100 is recommended for all AGNR students. Registration will occur at orientation.
