  • Enrolled students will receive an email with instructions for watching a course orientation video prior to the first day of class. An Orientation Q&A session (recommended, but not required) will be held on Thursday, August 29 at 7:30 pm in RCK Schwartz Auditorium. PHYS 1101 allows considerable flexibility, but students must plan to come to the Learning and Testing Centers (RCK 280 and 250) regularly. The Centers are open most afternoons and evenings, beginning at 11:15 am on the first day of class. Time-management skills and self-motivation are crucial to success. Freshmen are not allowed to enroll due to difficulty level and enrollment capacity.
