Our general advisers help students plan and shape their undergraduate experience at the UW. In addition to assistance with tasks such as choosing a major and planning course schedules, advisers engage in a broader dialogue with individual students to better clarify their academic and personal goals.
This class provides spring quarter, first year students with an opportunity to reflect on their first year, while providing tangible, and proactive opportunities to prepare for a meaningful second year and beyond.

Exploring majors for me was incredibly difficult at first. I knew I wanted to do something involving education, however I wasn’t exactly sure. taking a FIG my first quarter was extremely helpful in figuring out the difference between not being genuinely interested in a major and not doing well in a specific class for that major. With help from my advisor, I found out that I could double major in Psychology and ECO.
