A course that orients students to life on UTA's campus and emphasizes engagement beyond the classroom. Students in this course will experience the UTA community by attending campus events and making connections beyond their studies, including interaction with career services, the library and financial literacy services. Students will also be able to identify campus resources to support their wellness from multiple aspects of their lives, both the social and the physical. Each UNIV 1000 class section has a Peer Academic Leader (PAL), who is a student that has already taken the course and assists as a discussion leader for the class under the supervision of the instructor. PALs will work with students on finding their place on campus, learning academic success skills, and developing a degree map.
