Each section of COR 101 is unique, and is tailored based on the requirements of that section and to the major or learning community it serves. All sections, however, do have a common set of requirements to maintain consistency across the curriculum:
1. Students should attend at least five campus/community events.
Generally, students are asked to attend a minimum of five events throughout the entire semester. This is to encourage students to explore the campus or community, and to help them understand what is available to them at SUNY Cortland. It is always a good idea to attend together as a group, or with their student facilitator or instructor! Students should attend at least one of each of the following:
Note for Fall 2021: As some classes may be modified and events may be available on a limited basis during the COVID-19 pandemic, instructors and student facilitators have flexibility to modify the campus/community events requirement. You may alter the number of events, types of events, or consider alternate forms of engaging with the campus community. This may include digital lectures, virtual club meetings, e-sports, online civic engagement forums, etc. Work alongside students to create a meaningful experience that helps them to connect with the campus while also adhering to campus and community safety guidelines.
2. Students are expected to write at least 6 (to 12) pages of material.
Each section of COR 101 has written material requirements, in addition to many of the experiential and discussion based learning opportunities. These are designed to stimulate the intellectual growth of the student, and allow for reflection and contemplation of their experience.
3. Students should become proficient using myRedDragon.
Students receive important campus information via myRedDragon. It is important students review their email on a daily basis. Having full working knowledge of myRedDragon assures that students are aware of every opportunity and important step they need to take to be successful.
4. Students are expected to attend class and participate with class discussion and activities
Active learning techniques are encouraged in and out of class. By being an engaged classroom participant, each student will have a greater experience and take away more from the classroom.
5. Completion of the College Student Inventory (CSI).
Additional information along with log-in directions will be distributed early in the semester to instructors and teaching assistants. The College Student Inventory helps both the students and instructors to better understand the unique needs of each student.
