Experience Montclair

College years are your time to learn, explore and grow, both inside and outside the classroom. Experience Montclair provides you with activities, events and workshops to help you stimulate intellectual curiosity through co-curricular programming. This initiative promotes student engagement, starting with your very first semester. As you begin your transition to college life you will be presented with opportunities to explore areas of personal interest.

As a requirement of the first-year seminar course, GNED 199, students will select to attend three University-sponsored events that are outside of classroom instruction. Students enrolled in this course are required to attend one Academic Connection event, one Campus & Community Connection event and one Life Skills/Personal Growth event.

These events fall into three categories:

Is This For Me?

  • First Year Students enrolled in New Student Seminar/GNED 199 are required to attend an event from each category.
  • Second-semester freshmen, sophomore, juniors and seniors, although not required to, are invited to attend University events to develop their own co-curricular transcript.
  • ANYONE can develop a co-curricular transcript and enjoy exciting incentives while doing so.

Co-curricular transcripts increase connection with faculty and expand your knowledge in a variety of areas. Have fun experiencing Montclair!
