Connections Project

At Holy Names University we are committed to your success and to supporting you in your transition to college. The Connections Project is a comprehensive program that includes academic classes exclusively for first year students, upper-class peer mentoring, co-curricular opportunities and thematic Learning Communities, all of which are designed to assist you in becoming a successful college learner and to connect you to HNU resources. All new first year students are enrolled in this program and therefore are assigned to an Academic Learning Community.
