First Year Courses


First Year Only

First Year Only (FYO) sections strictly enroll first year students. Your FYO will have a dedicated faculty member and a student mentor who is there to answer your questions, announce upcoming events and help you navigate UW-Eau Claire.

FYOs Fall 2016:

TBA soon!

Blugold Bundles

You may also consider enrolling in a Blugold Bundle which consists of two or more courses or experiences linked by a common topic or question. Bundles will connect personal experiences and multiple disciplines allowing you to apply knowledge between courses and better understand the value of a liberal education.

Bundles Fall 2016:

TBA soon!

Ask about these great opportunities during orientation or your advising meeting!


Instructors-Please consider becoming a part of UW-Eau Claire's first year programming and contact Dr. Louisa Rice.
