Northwest Missouri State University


Mission Statement

The mission of the Freshman Seminar Program at Northwest Missouri State University is to provide a quality learning environment empowering students to be successful by helping them develop:

  • essential academic skills;
  • information regarding resources available on campus;
  • a plan for success both in and after college;
  • a connection to the co-curricular opportunities with their curricular goals;
  • Ability to identify personal values and analyze choices based on these values, especially in relation to success in college.

The student will have the opportunity for close interaction with an assigned instructor and peer advisor in a small group/class setting. The topics to be addressed relate to helping students understand their responsibility for their college experience through developing an appreciation for the value of a general education as they prepare for a technologically evolving and culturally diverse world.
