The First Year Engager Badge

First year workshops and events are designed to help you make informed decisions and develop a community of learners. Taking time to engage in multiple opportunities during your first year demonstrates your desire to be a self-guided learner and citizen.

Check the First Year Experience Calendar of Events for a list of upcoming events and workshops. After attending at least 2 events and 2 workshops and meeting at least 1 new person, write a reflection on your overall First Year Experience.

For more information about earning the badge, visit the Digital Badges site.
