Are you looking for an engaging and transformative university experience? Grogan College could be your first-year home. Grogan College seeks to develop the successful students, future professionals, leaders, and informed citizens of the UNCG campus and beyond. Becoming a Groganite can be your first step towards making an easier transition to college life, maintaining a higher GPA, developing leadership skills, building relationships with friends & faculty, and having fun while exploring University resources & opportunities.
Grogan College is a supportive, residential community of students and faculty with common interests who engage in courses and extracurricular activities designed to enhance the first-year student’s personal and academic success. Each community within the College focuses on a specific theme; some are designed for students who have already selected a major or career while others are design for all students who wish to develop transferable professional competencies that are highly valued regardless of intended major or career. The students in each community take several courses together, one or more of which is taught by the Faculty Fellow. Groganites benefit from mentoring and support provided by the Faculty Fellow and the Residential Peer Academic Mentor (PAL), an upperclassman who lives on the same floor as the community.
