First Year Programs - LUL Courses
The Office of First-Year Programs offers three types of transitional courses for new students - LUL10100, LUL10101, and LUL11000. All first-year students must take either LUL10100 or LUL10101 during their first semester. Transfer students who successfully completed a Freshmen Seminar course at another college are exempt from taking LUL101.
LUL 10100 - Freshmen Experience
LUL10100 is a required two-credit course for graduation that focuses on the tools necessary to become a successful college student at LindenwoodUniversity. Academic, social, and personal development is stressed throughout the course. Topics covered include time management, study skills, critical thinking, classroom etiquette, values clarification, public speaking, test taking strategies, and Lindenwood University's history and expectations. Open dialogue between the instructor and students is an important aspect of this course.
LUL10101 - Honors Freshmen Experience
LUL10101 covers the same areas as LUL10100, however it is a three-credit honors course. A philosophical approach is used to investigate the topics. The course is instructed by a faculty member.
LUL 11000 - Academic Success Strategies
LUL11000 is a one credit course that is offered online to students who are enrolled in an online undergraduate degree program. The course provides direction and support that will enhance adult students' potential for success in their undergraduate online program. Topics include, but are not limited to, navigating Blackboard, balancing school and work, being an online learner, and handling stress.
