LEEU-101: Freshman Gateway Seminar is a required course for all freshman students during their first semester. The class focuses on helping you adjust to life as a Lee student. It is one of the best ways to meet other peers and to interact one-on-one with professors and upperclassmen Peer Leaders. During the semester, you will have opportunities to connect through your time in class, relaxed hangouts, group service projects, and other campus events. Freshman students enroll in LEEU-101 for the first semester. During your second semester, you will be enrolled in LEEU-102A: Global Perspectives Seminar and LEEU-102B: Foundations of Benevolence.
One of the best parts about LEEU-101 are the Gateway Instructors and Peer Leaders. You will have the opportunity to connect with one of our faculty members through this course. Each instructor desires to be personally invested in your life as a student and can serve as a great resource to you. Peer Leaders are selected upperclassmen who are here to help you navigate your first year at Lee. Although they were in your shoes not long ago, they have since gotten into the swing of things and want to see you do the same. Whether it is showing you how to make your class schedule for the next semester, connecting you with campus groups that you might be interested in joining, teaching you about “Taco Tuesday” at Tres Hermanos, or being there to help you navigate some of the more personal challenges of freshman year, Peer Leaders are here to help you make your first year at Lee as successful as possible.
