First-Year Seminars can be a powerful opportunity for students to have a new encounter with the performing arts.  There are all kinds of ways seminars can connect with Mondavi performances and speakers, from engineering to creativity to music to pop culture. Attendance at performances counts toward classroom hours, so attendance at 2 performances would cover 3-4 hours of class time. Tours of the Mondavi Center, and classroom visits from Mondavi staff may also be arranged.
