Department of Freshman Studies

Contact the Department of Freshmen Studies Staff

Hampton University's Department of Freshman Studies Staff is primarily responsible for all Freshmen. We provide a full menu of academic support services to all new first-time collegiates, with one main objective in mind: to help Freshmen become Sophomores.

To accomplish this task, the Freshman Studies Staff provides academic advisement, academic counseling and social & personal counseling. Additionally the department houses special programs to assist academically deficient admits and undecided majors.
