What benefits do HPEX students have

Each fall, new HPEX students take UCOL 1200, a First Year Seminar class designed especially for them. These HPEX seminars not only introduce new students to the many resources across campus and teach skills for college success, but also aim to help the HPEX student gain a full understanding of what it will take to become a competitive applicant for their intended Graduate Program. They are small, discussion and activity-based classes that allow students the opportunity to engage with peers pursuing the same goals and in many of the same classes. Special programs are also planned for HPEX students throughout the year to help them further explore their interest areas and make connections on campus as well as in the community.
