The First-Year Experience (FYE) program is dedicated to providing a comprehensive core of academic support services that will influence academic achievement and retention.
The department is committed to providing meaningful, coherent and fulfilling experiences to increase the retention rate of its students by facilitating activities such as Welcome Week, the Freshmen Studies Program, academic advisement, academic counseling and many other activities. We work to provide a challenging yet supportive environment for our first-year students during their transition to higher education.
Faculty, staff, administrators and students work together to cultivate a learning community which prepares and engages students academically, socially and spiritually for leadership in a complex, diverse, and rapidly changing world. In achieving its mission and adhering to the university’s mission, the First-Year Experience program offers programs and opportunities for academic, social and personal growth.
As a peer mentor, you will be able to assist in accomplishing our mission of providing a challenging yet supportive environment for our first-year students during their transition to higher education. It is important for freshmen to view you as a positive role model, a guide, a peer adviser and a friend. Early arrival is for leadership training and preparation for "Welcome Week".
