Sky Lottery is a program designed celebrate employees making a special effort to engage and support our student and college community events. It’s also a nice opportunity to share one of Unity College’s most exciting resources.
F2Y is Unity College’s approach to creating a distinctively immersive First Two Year (F2Y) experience for its residential students. The F2Y approach is based on the expeditionary model of learning where students, faculty and staff are immersed in extended learning projects that require integrated learning, teamwork, and resilience. F2Y is slated to launch in Fall 2020.
