First-Year Courses

The most successful students take an active role in their education. Our First-Year Studies program gives you the tools to dive into your passions and learn how to ask—and answer—thoughtful questions. Required classes help you sharpen your writing and research skills, encourage you to play a role on campus and in the neighboring community, and take advantage of all Curry’s resources.

Curry Partnership Program

A little inside knowledge can go a long way. Think of your Curry Partner as a live guide to all things Curry. Partners are fellow students and staff members who can help you find campus resources, fix schedule problems or handle any issues that may pop up while you adjust to college.

First-Generation Student Support

Transitioning to college life can be difficult, especially if you are the first in your family to do it. At Curry, we’re committed to creating a unique community of academic and social support for first-gen college students and their families to feel confident navigating life at Curry and achieving success.
