Midwestern State University takes seriously its responsibility to help our first-year students acclimate to college. One key component of our First-year Experience programming is the fall semester First-year Seminar Learning Communities.

During the fall semester, we link several core courses to a section of MWSU 1230: First-year Seminar, and all new students are required to enroll in one (there are some exceptions; your Academic Counselor will work with you). 

These Learning Communities of 15-20 students will meet one hour each week and be led by peer mentors trained to deliver a first-year seminar curriculum. The seminar gives students opportunities to learn about campus resources and study skills, and apply these skills to shared academic tasks.
