Making the most of your freshman experience.

Your first year is a wonderful time to explore the Eccles School and the University of Utah. Your pre-business courses include BCOR 1010, a career-exploration class that helps you explore and prepare for career paths in business through assessments and activities, culminating in a personalized career development plan.

Seek a balanced schedule with lots of variation, and try things that might surprise you. Get involved in a student club, meet new people, and attend events offered across the university. And as you settle into your college experience, know we are here to support you. Sign up for a free appointment in the tutoring center, meet with your academic advisor, and drop by the Office for Student Inclusion to find a quiet moment in the reflection room.

In Spring Semester, you’ll apply for admission to the Eccles School (Upper Division). Take time to reflect, plan for summer internships, continued courses, or study abroad with Eccles Global.

“As I started my first semester of college three years ago, I had no clue where the next four years would take me or what I wanted to do with my life. Now, I’m entering my senior year with a lot more clarity and ready to take on the ‘real-world’ with confidence. I can attribute my preparation to the quality education I’ve received from the U and my Eccles Experience.” ~ Bayleigh Whiteley
