First Year Communications

The First Year of Studies works with academic departments and other units of the University to inform first-year students about events and opportunities that will enhance their education and college experience.

First Year of Studies communications provide information to first-year students and parents that is timely and relevant to them.

  • We provide up-to-date information on all academic requirements, courses, and programs.
  • We regularly communicate information that will help first-year students explore all academic disciplines.
  • We share information about opportunities that encourage students to take part in Notre Dame's intellectual and cultural life outside the classroom.
  • We send information about future opportunities such as career development or research, that require early engagement and planning.
