Dialogue 100

As part of our emphasis on academic advising in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Dialogue program seeks to ease students’ transition to university life, strengthen existing support networks, advise students about academic scheduling and curriculum, and introduce students to academic resources on campus. As part of the Dialogue program, all first year students register for a 1.0 credit Dialogue course their first semester in college, by which they meet with their academic advisor once a week in a small group with other students in their major. This is a great opportunity for students to get to know a faculty member and all that the University has to offer.  Dialogue groups do everything from campus scavenger hunts, to learning how to select classes, and talking about problems and opportunities on campus. It is a very supportive and community-building environment.

Students consistently report how much fun and helpful the Dialogue program is:

  • “The atmosphere is always supportive and registering for next semester is simple.”

  • “It was amazing how much I learned from professors and students coming in and sharing their experiences.”

  • “It provides important information with everything you need to know about college, while having fun and interacting with others.”

Transfer students also participate in Dialogue to help them make connections and acclimate to life at the University of Hartford.
