First-year students need to explore their philosophies of leadership, as well as their own personal development. Personal values, leadership, and strengths are concepts being explored during the first year at Marian University. One-day leadership workshops, programs and retreats are planned to help students with their journey. The main goal and outcome is to help students explore who they are and apply what they learn to how they will serve their profession and community.

First-year students are encouraged to find ways to get involved in the Marian University community. During the first week of classes, students are encouraged to attend Club Fair, where more than 30 organizations are represented. It is recommended that students join two organizations, one related to their major and one that is social.
