A hallmark of the first-year experience at Central College is LAS 110 Intersections. Required of all first-time, first-year students in the fall semester, Intersections is an interdisciplinary seminar designed to introduce students to the intellectual life at a liberal arts college and to academic life at Central. Small groups of students explore the intersections at which academic/intellectual disciplines, ideas, and events converge, connect, and collide. Faculty from across campus teach the seminars. All sections of the course share a common reading and an introduction to the liberal arts, and instructors select their own topics for the remainder of their section.
