When you start college, everything is new and different. Right from the first day, First Year Seminar helps you meet other students, connect with a faculty member who can help you adjust, and find your way.
In our first-year seminars, we work with you to help you start on the path to discovery. Your instructor becomes your guide and mentor. Together, you explore a topic and search for questions and resolutions. Your instructor encourages you to become an active member of the Elms College community and advises you as you develop your academic program to cultivate a lively atmosphere that encourages diverse perspectives and the free exchange of ideas.
We are a private Catholic coeducational liberal arts college founded in 1928 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield, Massachusetts. Elms College is located in Chicopee, Massachusetts, and grants associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees.
