As part of the First Year Seminar (CORE101), students are required to participate in at least five extra-curricular events or activities on campus over the course of their first semester. This 5th Hour of participation on campus is designed to assist new students with their transition to college life and the campus community at St. Mary's. Whether it involves attendance at an athletics event, a concert, or a coffee house, the 5th Hour is intended to help students become active on campus and integrated into our community.
Events and activities that qualify for the 5th Hour are at the discretion of the Seminar instructor. However, many events and activities that will fit the criteria of the Seminar instructors can be found at The Bulletin. A reflective component that is determined by the instructor, such as brief writing assignments, also accompanies the participation in 5th Hour events.
