In this course, we examine the complexity of our Headwaters Region from interdisciplinary perspectives. But we also examine the source of a trans-formative educational experience, and imagine how that can flow into a prosperous intellectual, civic, and personal life. This discussion-based seminar, supplemented by our Headwaters Lecture Series and field trips exploring the Gunnison Country's learning laboratories, introduces you to Western dedicated faculty, diverse disciplines, supportive culture of learning, and active lifestyle.

Headwaters 100 Orientation
Your First Year Seminar meets for the first time during Orientation - where you meet your professor and student mentor for the course. During Orientation, you have the chance to participate in field experiences such as the HWTR 100 service project and a Wilderness Pursuit trip. You also meet your first year academic advisor before the end of Orientation. Finally, as a part of your First Year Seminar, President Gregory Salsbury kicks off the Headwaters Lecture Series with our inaugural convocation: The Western Liberal Arts Experience, on Friday, August 22th at 1:00 pm.
