As a first-year student, my first-year seminar has been a great asset in my learning experience and I was very fortunate to be able to take advantage of this opportunity. Classes of 200-300 students are intimidating for some students, but having a small class setting of 20 students has made transitioning to university more comfortable.
I feel more engaged in the class and am always participating because of the more relaxed atmosphere, whereas in a larger class setting I would be less apt to speak out loud. My first-year seminar has also been great preparation for future classes in 3rd and 4th year.

From a survey of 225 employers: "More interesting, at least for those of us who got some parental grief over our college choice, was the apparent love being shown for liberal arts majors. Thirty percent of surveyed employers said they were recruiting liberal arts types, second only to the 34 percent who said they were going after engineering and computer information systems majors. Trailing were finance and accounting majors, as only 18 percent of employers said they were recruiting targets." For the full story, click here
