Students Studying Around a Table

Join us for the First Year Experience Roundtable!

This event will feature a cross-disciplinary group of faculty/staff/administrators who will speak on the common First Year Experience (FYE) theme in remarks informed by their personal experience, disciplinary perspective, work with students, intellectual life at Widener and beyond. The roundtable allows students to engage with the theme from multiple perspectives, to see how disciplinary work and personal stories can intersect to offer moments of insight into a significant idea (i.e., the theme), and to experience members of the Widener community modeling the kind of critical thinking and discourse we aim for in a liberal education.
