Freshman/Transfer Forum is a small-group, seminar-like class, helps new students discover all that The College, SU, and the surrounding communities have to offer. Forum groups are comprised of approximately 16 students and are led by faculty and staff members, who are well acquainted with aspects of college life that are important to students. Groups meet weekly and are uniquely focused, depending on the interests and background of the forum leader. Discussions revolve around current issues, personal growth and goal setting, becoming an active member of an academic community, and exploring the liberal arts. Forum groups attend several activities together over the six-to eight-week program
