Through their first-year experience students learn to cope with the transition to college & grow into an independent adult.
Through the First-Year Experience, students will be provided an array of opportunities to develop personally and academically within their residential community. Students first year at DePauw is a pivotal time for their development, therefore all first-year students are placed in one of the six residence halls that aim to develop a common, inclusive and supportive experience. Our programs purpose is intentional, focusing on their transitions and providing the best resources and support for students as they acclimate to DePauw. Each residence community provides programmatic and community development opportunities in addition to peer support and mentoring.
