The Freshman Symposium: Educating Leaders of Faith and Character is a one-credit-hour course taken during the student’s first fall semester. This symposium will introduce students to the University by focusing on St. Thomas’ mission to educate leaders who can think critically, communicate effectively, lead ethically and succeed professionally. The program will explain the role of the Basilian Fathers who founded the University in 1947 and whose faithful and welcoming charisma continued to share the institution.
