Freshman Facts or Fiction

This seminar is organized around the topic “Freshman Facts or Fiction”. As an incoming student you may have a few questions. Is the Freshman 15 something to worry about? What are the best ways to take notes, by hand or typed? Should I pull an all-nighter before a big exam? Does a major predict my future economic success? Additional questions will be addressed according to class interests. We will explore these questions using quantitative evidence, some of which will collect ourselves, and draw conclusions using quantitative reasoning.
