University Experience

Why should I take a University Experience course?

University Experience (UNIV 101) provides you with an invaluable introduction to college. This elective, one-credit, 16-week class is designed to help you adjust to NIU.

In addition to developing skills necessary to succeed in college — and beyond — you’ll:

  • Explore the impact that well-being has on academic, personal, and vocational success.   
  • Identify and utilize academic support services and resources.
  • Explore opportunities in building social health and engagement in the NIU community and its connection to well-being.
  • Enhance communication skills in various settings including communities, classrooms, and potential workspaces with peers, staff, and faculty.
