The College Colloquium

The College Colloquium is a one-semester seminar required of all entering first-year students. Taught by faculty across the curriculum and encompassing a wide diversity of topics, each seminar provides a challenging and engaging introduction to the liberal arts curriculum by focusing on close reading, writing, discussion, and critical thinking.

Seminars are small, averaging 12 to 14 students. The seminar teacher is also the academic advisor to each student in his or her seminar.
