Brescia Bold

Brescia’s Bold First-Year Seminar Experience

Brescia BOLD: IDS 1020A/B

Designed to and reflect on the “big questions” of the world—and develop the skills you need to solve current real-world problems.

This course begins with you. Who you are. What you want to be. What you care about most.

Welcome to Brescia Bold! This first-year course provides an interdisciplinary study on living well, learning deeply, and leading to serve others. We will address theories around a good life and ask questions about how to live your values. Students dive deeply to acquire critical reading and thinking skills for university success, while engaging in debates about what makes a successful career and a meaningful life. With group discussions and a shared classroom experience, students practice what it means to be part of a civil society and to thrive in a dynamic, diverse, and complex world.

We look forward to welcoming you into our classroom.
See you soon,
Academic Dean Dr. Lauretta Frederking and Associate Academic Dean Dr. John Mitchell
