Intrauniversity Courses

Intrauniversity Courses

Intrauniversity courses are designed to prepare students, regardless of the college in which their major belongs, to develop oral and written communication skills, experience community service in a meaningful way, and expand overall career and academic development.  

New Student Seminar

The New Student Seminar (INTRAUNV 104) is designed to help freshmen and transfers students make a successful transition to UW-Whitewater. First year students who take this course are more likely to return for their sophomore year and have a higher graduation rate than those who don't take the course.

SUCCEED in a changing world

  • Learn and apply strategies for personal success, academic success and lifelong learning.
