INTRODUCTION TO COLLEGE EXPERIENCE (ICE)
The Introduction to the College Experience (ICE) is designed to assist the new student by providing information and skills essential for a successful college experience. The one-credit hour course for first year college students reviews key University information on policies, procedures, and services; it identifies for the student positive college readiness skills (study skills, time management, etc.); furthermore, it outlines career planning opportunities; and finally it provides information to enhance the advising sessions with the studentís academic advisor. Small groups of 12-15 students meet once a week and are directed by a selected faculty or staff mentor. The course is required for all new students entering the University with fewer than 12 credit hours. Frequently, a contemporary text is chosen to be read by all ICE classes. The theme of this "Common Reader" is often referred to in other first-year general education courses. Students who fail or withdraw from ICE must repeat the course until a passing grade is earned.
