1st year student performance
The Foundation Forum is a series of lectures offered to Foundation students registered in nine or more credits. Forums are scheduled on Mondays from 11:30-12:45 in room 301 and feature topics that include art, media, design and performance. For Fall 2011 there will be approximately 12 Forums. Students are required to attend at least six Forums. Notes taken during these lectures will be considered part of the student’s individual course evaluation for grades.
Mandatory attendance is required for Forums covering University program information. These presentations include information on requirements for second year registration, explanations of the various programs, and instructions on how to apply.
Each year the Foundation Department holds a video competition, open to all Foundation students, inviting participants to make a short video to be used to promote the Foundation Show. Visit the links below to view the 2009 Foundation Show video finalists.
