Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
The goal of ENV 100 is to help students create tools that they will use to enhance their success in college and within their chosen majors. Students will be challenged to think intentionally about how they will approach learning inside and outside the classroom and what factors might influence their college experience. Through this course, students will think about their transition from high school to college; identify campus resources and explore academic policies; explore potential internship and career paths; engage in and reflect upon cultural and educational events across campus; and create a "strategic plan" for their time at NC State.
