We present results from the first year of the Astronomy Stream of the Freshman Research Initiative at the University of Texas. This program is designed to involve freshmen directly in our research on white dwarf stars. We describe the progress the students have made in the last year on (a) planet detection using pulsating white dwarfs including identifying a promising new candidate, (b) improving our data analysis techniques, (c) updating our web page interface for remote participation, and (d) making preliminary calculations for 3D hydrodynamic modeling of convection in white dwarf stars.
