About the Episode

The what's what...

Zach and Mickey debrief after The Enrollify Podcast Roadshow and riff on ideas about how the freshman year should be reimagined. Should students be required to enter college as “undecided”?  Should the core curriculum include content on “how to manage a budget”, “understanding your personality test”, “possible career pathways for people like you”, etc?  

Students might have an idea of what they want, but they don’t always know how to get there…what if freshman year was hyper-focused on helping students understand how the world actually works before allowing them to take major-specific courses?
