The fall semester begins with a 3-week session in which students take one course. First-year students take their Initiate course at this time. Three-week courses meet daily in the morning (9-12) or afternoon (2-5) with Collaborative Time for campus events between the class blocks. Students benefit from immersive learning experiences during the three-week session, including study away and study abroad. Most 12-week courses meet on two or three days per week (MWF, MW, or TR) and students typically take three 4-credit classes in the 12-week session. Collaborative and Community times are spread throughout the week.
