First-Year Experience courses are specifically designed to meet the needs of El Centro's first-semester freshmen. The courses provide a theoretical and practical foundation for helping students develop, both academically and socially. Some of the major topics include self-awareness, educational and career planning, critical thinking, self-awareness, personal responsibility, self-regulated learning, and decision-making.
