FYS - Transforming Creativity *: Home

A library research guide and tutorial for the First Year Writing Seminary

Using This Guide

Welcome to the FYS Transforming Creativity research guide. Use the tabs at the top of the page to access a variety of resources relevant to the course.

As the 2024 cohort, you will be the first to tackle the new normal as you envision and resolve challenges in impractful and meaningful ways. This seminar equips you to investigate how nimbleness and astuteness as well as knowledge design will impact your own courage to transform. Your studies along your intellectual and  joyful discoveries will help form patterns, forms or even symbols in a new key. Lessons as future leaders will be drawn from visionaries, game changers and those emerging as we engage with this course. This section is reserved for students in the Honors Program.
