New Student Seminar is a class designed to facilitate academic, spiritual and social development, the understanding of ethics and values within a Christian university setting and provide interaction between faculty and students which establishes high academic expectations.

CSER workers are asked to interact with new students and their families in a way that provides reassurance during the first two to three days that the student is on campus. They will be asked to complete any organizational/administrative work necessary to prepare for the successful implementation of FRSM101 each semester (including supply preparation, classroom preparation, etc). They will direct students to classroom locations, answer basic questions about the course, and assist FRSM 101 instructors/elective presenters as needed.
