COR 101 was initiated at SUNY Cortland in the fall of 1997. The course was developed from the growing field of research and practice regarding the first-year experience and previous initiatives at SUNY Cortland. First-year seminars are a nationwide initiative, developed in different formats, but they typically share common foundational themes such as developmental and meta-cognition theories, involvement, and integration themes.
