Connection, Engagement, & the College Experience

A collaboration between UD Academic Advisors, Career Coaches, and the Student Academic Center. For first-year Exploratory students in University Division.

The college experience is a journey, a trip, and a story, with many paths of exploration before you!  As you begin your time with us at IU Bloomington, the thing that will give you direction, energy, and drive through your adventure is Connection.   

In this small class, we will build a warm, supportive, and connected community where you will learn how to: 

  • Discover more about who you are and what you want as you connect with seeking meaning and purpose in your education. 
  • Make new friends and build strong relationships with your own personal support team of academic advisors, career coaches, professors, and many other helpers and guides on campus.  
  • Upgrade and expand your skills to deepen your learning for all of your classes and meet the challenges of college academic work. 

Contact Anthony Guest-Scott ( for more information!


Engage in rich conversations and equip yourself with useful tools on the journey as you make important decisions about classes, majors, and how those choices can connect to a life of fulfilling work, service to others, continued learning, and joy.  


Experience a deep sense of belonging and excitement as we help make IU feel like a second home and a place full of new adventures and opportunities.
