The Eagle Guide program is not only a great way to get involved with new students, but also aid freshman as they transition from being dependent to independent. Eagle Guides take part in Carson-Newman's LA 101 classes. In these classes, the Eagle Guides keep the students updated on campus events such as athletic games, CLW's, and Eagle Talks. They also help plan, coordinate and execute FY-FRI events. Throughout the semester, the Eagle Guides build lasting relationships with their students.
