Students enroll in a three (3) credit hour course to help the transition to college and to develop the study skills necessary to be a successful student. The class meets every day and includes mandatory study sessions to process the material learned in class.

Students can choose one of two courses offered:

PHI 101: Introduction to Philosophy, Taught By Dr. Andy Walsh
Most people go to college so they can become successful. What is success? What is real? How do we know what we claim to know? What makes life worth living? Throughout history, people have asked such questions, but philosophy requires us to explore a wide range of possible answers. More importantly, philosophy encourages us to provide support in the form of evidence and reasons for our own answers to such questions.

BIO 112: How the Body Works, Taught by Dr. Esa Seegulam
This is a course designed for students to appreciate the beauty and complexity of the human body. Some fundamental skills of measurement and evaluation will be taught by using different equipment and conducting various tests. Body functions will be studied by relating to daily activities. This class is designed for non-majors only and does not count toward the biology major. Offered every spring during the three week session.


Dr. Andy Walsh
Dr. Walsh is the chair of the religion and philosophy department at Culver-Stockton College. He has won numerous teaching awards and is completing his second book beyond the dissertation. He just finished his first marathon, gets lost easily, and delights in a dry sense of humor. His favorite philosopher, Socrates, was wise because he recognized his own ignorance.

Dr. Esa Seegulam
Dr. M. Esa Seegulam is from the Caribbean twin-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago. He loves teaching biology courses to majors and non-majors alike, and especially enjoys working with first-generation college students as he was one when he first came to the US for college in 2002. He spends his free time watching documentaries, traveling, and cooking, and counts Netflix and Twitter among his vital necessities.
