Student Academic Support Services: FYE

The First-Year Experience Program has three main components:

  • A mandatory course for first-time, first-year students called FYE 100 - College Engagement Seminar
  • FYE peer leaders to assist freshmen as they transition to college
  • Success Coaching provided specifically to meet the needs and concerns of first-year students. 

FYE 100 - College Engagement Seminar

FYE 100 Course Organization:

The FYE 100 - College Engagement Seminar course is organized around the following Framing Questions and the course schedule and assignments will reflect this focus:

  1. Why college and how to use Growth Mindset to be successful?
  2. Who am I?
  3. What is good research?
  4. What does research reveal about my experience?

First-Year Peer Leader Program

The First-Year Peer leaders mentor first-year students and provide an immediate support network for students entering college for the first time. First-Year Peer Leaders are assigned to a section of FYE 100 each fall semester and continue to work with that cohort of first-year students through the first year.
