Discover the Clues to Academic Success:
Learn to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock HolmesThis 3-day extended orientation program emphasizes Problem Solving, Critical Thinking, and Integrity or the moral compass that drives our choices ultimately impacting the quality of our lives and the world in which we live.

Though the realities of our times often lead us to question the meaning of integrity in the 21st century, clearly, in the light of current events, it is a timeless virtue. In response, institutions of higher education are focusing more attention on fostering responsible citizens and ethical leaders.
