Welcome to the Office of Freshman Studies
Making the jump from High School to College is a daunting experience but the St. Francis College Office of Freshman Studies is here to make that transition as smooth as possible. It's our mission to improve the quality of students' College experience by helping with everything from academics to personal issues, including guiding incoming students through the crucial social adjustment they will make during college life.
The department provides advisement and guidance to all incoming freshmen. The Freshman Studies program includes a Freshman Summer Orientation, a mandatory Freshman Seminar course (SFC 1001), academic advisement, and various workshops. Working closely with the Academic Enhancement Center, the Office of Freshman Studies strives to meet the changing needs of incoming freshmen.
