Warrington Welcome (GEB2015: Introduction to Business) is designed to help Business Gators transition to the University of Florida and the Warrington College of Business.
Students will discover the skills and resources necessary to be successful at UF and in the job market. Warrington Welcome will help students understand how to maximize their time as a Business Gator in four key areas: academics, career success, leadership, and international studies.
Warrington Welcome will also introduce students to Gator Ready, a tool to help students evaluate their growth in eight career readiness skills: Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Communication, Teamwork and Collaboration, Leadership, Professionalism/Work Ethic, Equity/Inclusion, Career Management, and Technical Acumen.
About Warrington Welcome
Warrington Welcome, also referred to as Introduction to Business, is a one-credit course for freshmen business students. It is highly suggested that students take it their first semester on campus. It is facilitated by a professional staff member and an upper-level business student, called a Peer Leader.
What is a Peer Leader?
A Peer Leader is an upper-level business student that serves a vital function as co-instructor for the Warrington Welcome course. Peer Leaders assist students by serving as a peer advisor, role model, and a representative of the Warrington College of Business. While serving their fellow students, they gain skills highly valued by employers and graduate schools.
