FSL offers a course one hour per week during both the fall and spring semesters for all four years of intended participation in the program. Attendance is mandatory for every participant. Each freshman cohort will begin by learning about academic responsibility and personal organization preferences. Over time, the curriculum will shift to cover topics such as interpersonal communication, mastering executive functioning skills and professional development. As participants move to their fourth year in the program, the focus of the course is strictly on career readiness and their final job shadow assignment.
Participants will meet with the Program Director on a weekly basis to ensure that they are on track and meeting the expectations of courses and the program. This will also be an opportunity for participants to express any concerns they might have or accomplishments they want to share.
Participants of FSL are paired with a fellow APSU student for their freshman and sophomore years. These individuals are available to assist in acclimation to the university and encouraging active participation in college life, but they also work with each participant to improve social anxiety, communication skills and explore new hobbies and interests.
