LNSK 103: University Foundations (UF) is a three credit hour transition class that is strongly recommended for incoming freshman and transfer students in their first semester. UF classes are offered during the fall and spring semesters. To register for a University Foundations class, please contact Rashawn Harvey.
In this class, students learn how to approach new ideas, study effectively, perform better in class and on tests, and become familiar with a variety of campus opportunities and resources. UF students learn how to utilize campus technology, become advocates for their own education, and develop professional skills that help them become successful students. Topics studied in UF include time management, study skills, reading, writing and speaking strategies, test taking, money management, how to give professional presentations, career preparation, resume development and general UNK knowledge about services, technology, policies, and academic issues.
Students taking Student Support Services UF classes participate in the Peer Mentoring Program during the fall semester. Each UF student is paired with an upperclassman mentor that guides them through their first semester at UNK. Mentoring pairs attend and participate in a variety of campus and Kearney community events and activities as well as address common issues and concerns faced by college students.
"I really enjoyed taking the University Foundations class. I met great people and gained some valuable information. Learning more about how to use blackboard and WebEASI helped me a lot too. I also appreciate how helpful everyone at the SSS office is; if you have a problem or question they are always willing to help." - Libby Manfull
