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.
