HNC Scholars also have the advantage of smaller class sections and increased interaction with faculty. The Hilltop faculty choose to teach in this environment because they believe in its ability to enhance the first-year experience, not only academically but socially. Students who know each other, and their instructors, on an informal basis will ask questions and contribute to class discussions more frequently.
A high comfort level in class helps facilitate success outside of class. The HNC Program provides several opportunities each semester for faculty-student interaction outside of class, such as movie nights, receptions with faculty and staff, and an end of the year banquet.
