MANHATTAN | Kansas State University is trying to make the transition from high school to college easier with special classes for incoming freshman capped at 22 students.
A pilot study, started this fall, will examine the feasibility and effectiveness of the first-year seminars program in helping first-year students learn.
The pilot study consists of 16 sections of first-year seminar courses.
Students enrolled in the courses will take part in a survey at the end of the semester. The survey will help determine their level of engagement, including their involvement in the course work and campus life.
