Janus Seminars

Janus Seminars

The Janus Seminars are a semester-long conference on personal and professional identity development for first-year students as they transition into college.

We use the name Janus because, like Janus in Roman mythology, we want our students to be looking backward and forward at the same time—at who and where they have been and where they are going and who they want to be.

Each student must attend 12 total seminars—to be chosen to fit his or her schedule, interests, and needs—over the course of the fall semester. Two will be required for all students: Preparing for LIB 199 and Preparing to Meet Your Academic Advisor.

Students choose their own seminars from the list below to fill out the remaining ten required seminars. Mission Core instructors provide details on how he or she can turn in your responses to each seminar.

Seminars are available Mondays and Fridays at 11 am, and several other dates throughout the semester in the basement of the library.  This way, students can complete three seminars in one day.  In addition to the regular seminars, special events are occasionally offered. 

Mission Core instructors can provide more information.
