The First Year Experience (FYE) program provides first-year students with a comprehensive learning experience that fosters transition to college, academic success, personal growth, and social responsibility.
FYE offers the First Year Seminar (GSR 101) course for all new students as part of the Foundations semester of the General Studies Program.
FYE offers a College Success Seminar (FYE 195) to students in developmental courses.
FYE offers a leadership seminar (FYE 310) for upper-class students who serve as Peer Leaders in all GSR 101 and FYE classes.
In addition to courses, the FYE program collaborates with Student Success Program's summer JumpStart program to provide a seamless transition into college academics.
As part of the co-curriculum, FYE leads the Common Reading Program, selecting a common reading with the involvement of a committee of faculty and staff and integrating this common reading across the curriculum and co-curriculum to create a campus-wide learning experience.
