This course is designed to provide students with tools to make sense of their college education and to be successful students at Aquinas College. It does this by cultivating an understanding of the evolving role of higher education in society and the nature of a liberal arts education and its relationships to career preparation. It also provides students an opportunity to think about the nature of learning and to practice tools of learning (such as reading, writing, studying, and reflection) that they will need as students in college. And it provides an introduction to the specific components that provide Aquinas College with a unique identity.
